Break out of the standard science-fair model and plan an impressive STEM event to get parents and your community involved in the amazing things happening in your school.

Hosting a STEM event at your school connects teachers, students, parents, and faculty through a common purpose. With teacher conferences and obligations outside the classroom, combined with students’ busy family schedules, planning a STEM event to accommodate everyone’s calendar can be difficult for teachers. Organizing any type of gathering can be a challenge, but with a few deep breaths and a bit of planning, teachers can organize a STEM event that is both fun and educational.

1. Plan Ahead

To increase the likelihood that parents will be able to attend a STEM event, make sure to plan ahead. Providing advance notice of at least one month will allow students, parents, school faculty, and teachers to prepare for the occasion. In addition to non-traditional family models and parents whose jobs require working outside of the 9-to-5 workday, students also engage in extracurricular activities, afterschool jobs, and help to manage the household. Publicizing the event well in advance will help busy families plan accordingly and make necessary adjustments to their schedules. Choosing a weekend or evening might mean some extra time at work for teachers and administrators, but it will also mean having more students and their families in attendance.
