The Marguerita PTA and Marguerita School are excited to bring the STEM + Families Science Festival to every classroom and your home! This amazing program provides students and their families with fun projects to explore STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) through hands-on activities.


In March and April, enrichment program provider High Touch High Tech will bring science educators to your child's virtual classroom for fun and engaging grade-specific science instruction and guided hands-on experiments. All science materials will be provided. Look out for upcoming supplies distribution dates from your child's teacher!


Can't wait to start the fun??? See the guides on PTA's page with additional science experiments that you and your child can do at home, at your own pace, using common household items! It also includes links to experiment demonstration videos. Get together with your family after class and launch a rocket or make Martian jelly today!


This program was made possible through generous funding from the Marguerita PTA, Marguerita School, and a $1,000 National PTA STEM + Families Science Festival Grant, sponsored by Bayer. Our program goals are:

• Make real-world connections with STEM principles like problem-solving and critical thinking.

• Inspire your family to explore interests and even potential careers in STEM.

• Give your family access to STEM activities you can do at home.
