AAAS Family Science Days is a free public science event that offers an array of hands-on family and child-friendly activities. It is held during the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Annual Meeting, the largest general scientific conference in the world. The 2019 AAAS Family Science Days event will be held Saturday, February 16, and Sunday, February 17, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, DC (location changes each year). Family Science Days feature interactive booths appropriate for K-12 youths and their families, highlighting diverse areas of science, as well as a live stage show and the chance to talk with scientists.

Family Science Days demonstrates the AAAS commitment to promoting public engagement with science, a central part of its mission to advance science and serve society. It provides an opportunity for local science organizations to gather and connect with their communities and gives the scientists attending the meeting a chance to see public engagement in action. The event is advertised to families via local media, schools, community organizations, and participating institutions.
