In November, more than 1,000 people attended Beloit’s inaugural Family Discovery Night in the Center for the Sciences. The event, presented through a grant from Kerry Ingredients and Flavours (with North American headquarters in Beloit) marked the beginning of a partnership between the college and Kerry, built around strengthening science learning opportunities for local youth and families.

Working alongside scientists from Kerry and Beloit, including Beloit College students, participants had the chance to discover how the brain works, watch marshmallow animals joust, and engage with robots. Here, Beloit College sophomore Alicia Hoffman (in the striped shirt) helps visitors investigate the energy efficiency of different types of lighting.
