Daycroft's Family Math and Science Fun Night happened from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at the school's elementary campus on Zeeb Road. Approximately 150 students and parents attended.

Daycroft students from preschool age through 6th grade explored concepts of math and science through interactive activities and games as they moved from station to station. Younger scientists explored age-appropriate activities in a specially prepared room.

There was no charge for the event, compliments of the Daycroft Parent Guild. Children were welcome to bring friends.
