Families from the Quincy area can learn about science -- and have a good time in the process -- at Quincy University's biannual Science Family Fun Night this Friday.

The free event goes from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the lower level of the QU Student Center and is open to the public. Parking will be available in C Lot along 18th Street between Lind and Elm.

Science Family Fun Night is designed for children in kindergarten through fifth grade, but children of all ages are welcome to attend.

This particular session will focus on the science behind going to see a doctor or a veterinarian.

More information about the Science Family Fun Night is available by contacting Kimberly Hale, an associate professor of biological sciences, by email at
