5. Fascinating Fun in STEM
Whether families attend a STEM Night or STEAM Saturday, they want to have fun while learning. Make the STEM event relevant to parents by starting conversations among groups of adults and engaging them in discussions regarding the different student projects. Invite STEM leaders to speak during events to relay the importance of these subjects in daily life and how strong skills can change kids’ lives for the better. The most important way to make a STEM event fun is through offering a variety of hands-on activities throughout the occasion.
The first step to hosting a successful STEM event is forging connections with parents. If those relationships are yet to be established, reach out to parents now and start preparing to host a STEM event to bring together the entire school and the community it supports.
