On Thursday, January 30th, Hampstead Hill Academy families ventured out into the cold to attend a special Family Science Night hosted by the Maryland Science Center and sponsored by the Joseph and Harvey Meyerhoff Family Charitable Funds.

Approximately 150 people attended this event. Students were active participants in eight different science experiments which included building a circuit, extracting DNA from wheat germ, battling the forces of science and much more.
