What: Family STEM Event
When: Thursday, March 22nd: 6:00-7:30 pm
Please join us for an evening full of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) exploration as your child facilitates activities you and your family will not want to miss. The challenges you will undergo as a family will expand your knowledge and allow your child to take on an important facilitator role. Our STEM activities are guaranteed to be fun for the entire family. Please know this is all about the attendees learning to problem- solve in order to come up with their own conclusions to the challenges they are facing. We have incorporated new experiments and activities as well as some favorites from our past years. We are excited for our families to explore the world of STEM!
If your family is unable to get to Aldrin due to a lack of transportation, please contact the school office. We do not want transportation issues to deter attendance.
Directions: On the attached page, please choose a minimum of five activities you would like to attend. Please order them with a 1 being your first choice, 2 as your second choice, 3 as your third choice, etc. We will schedule your family into two sessions. Please fill out the attached form (front and back) and return to your child’s teacher by Thursday, March 15th.
