Hands-On Family Nights
STEM & Social Studies
Get families excited about exploring science, technology, engineering, math, and social studies together! Book your own evening of hands-on learning—perfect events for Parent Teacher Associations and community organizations. Mix and match science and social studies activities. Choose from one of our STEM themes or customize your own experience by selecting from our collection of station activities. Our educators will work with you to identify activities that meet your school’s needs. All activities support NGSS and GLCEs and are appropriate for students in Kindergarten-6th grades. Host your Family Night event at your school OR enjoy an evening at Longway Planetarium or Sloan Museum.
