Tryon Elementary will present Family Science Night, an official event of the 2019 North Carolina Science Festival, on April 2 at 5 p.m. at the school.

Family Science Night will include hands-on activities that will give families a chance to explore science together. The activities provided will include a wide range of science, technology, engineering and math topics. It is the hope of the administration and staff at Tryon Elementary that students and parents will enjoy themselves, see that science is fun, learn something new and work together.
