The beauty that comes with #NEFScienceWeek is seeing smiles on the faces of children trying out science experiments & the hearts of unsung young minds soothed. Led by NEF Ambassadors, this signature program is designed for many age groups and provides an opportunity for citizens to engage in everyday science.

Kudos to our NEF Ambassadors who put a lot of sweat and love to get these incredible results! Sara Baptista🙌
