RYE — Seacoast Science Center, 570 Ocean Blvd., kicks off its Night at the Museum program for families on Friday night.
The series will feature STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) activities in a fun, relaxed setting.
“By making the activities playful and accessible for a variety of age levels, we want kids to feel empowered to try new things, test their own theories, and become citizen scientists,” said Kate Leavitt, the director of mission at the center. “Kids will also get to meet local marine STEM professionals who can encourage and mentor their interest in science-based careers.”
Friday’s program is offered in partnership with New Hampshire PBS, and will begin with a viewing of a new episode of “Splash and Bubbles,” which features videos, games and activities centering on two computer-animated ocean fish and their friends.
Afterward, visitors are invited to explore ocean science activities, meet live marine animals, try engineering design challenges and play games.
Cost is $2.50-$5; $10-$20 for a family of up to six people. For more information, visit seacoastsciencecenter.org or call 436-8043.
