Westerville Education Foundation, Starry Night - April 23rd
On Sunday, April 23rd, from 2-6pm, bring your family to the 5th annual Starry Night learning festival, sponsored by Nationwide Children’s Hospital and the Westerville Partners for Education, at Westerville North High School. The festival will offer experiences with experts from Columbus’ premier educational, business, and community organizations. Geared toward students in preschool through 8th grade and their caregivers and families, the event highlights the connection between all the arts and science—with the theme, “Art and Science – Fueling Imagination”.
See how crafts transformed from art to engineering & Science, how things work, and learn to work with tools. Westerville Partners for Education organizes this event as an annual opportunity for families to learn together and to develop relationships with community organizations. Starry Night allows us to go out and find the most fascinating educational organizations in the Columbus area and put them in a room with kids and families.
