STARKVILLE, Miss.—The public is once again invited to Mississippi State to enjoy Science Night at the Museums on Saturday, Feb. 19.

Hosted by the Museums and Galleries Committee, the free 5-8 p.m. event takes place in Hilbun Hall and the Cobb Institute of Archaeology. Masks are required in all campus buildings.

Visitors and families can enjoy museum exhibits, science activities and demonstrations throughout the evening. They also have a chance to win prizes from local businesses by participating in a food drive raffle. A local Girl Scout Troop along with Starkville Strong Youth Coalition will collect non-perishable food items and toiletries to restock local food pantries. Contributors will receive one raffle ticket for three items donated, and five donated items will generate two tickets. Winners must be present to claim prizes.
