Family members are just one of the major influences on a young person’s career pathway. Hosting a STEM Family Challenge event provides a unique opportunity for schools to build and enhance relationships with family members and to engage and inspire young people to explore STEM in a fun way. Planning a STEM Family Challenge event is a BIG undertaking and requires a lot of resources and time to plan and execute effectively. Also, a STEM Family Challenge event ought to be fun, hands-on, accessible, cover different topics and interests, and give families opportunities to design, build and compete! This is where we come in. We provide a turnkey kit that any school or club can pull off with even limited volunteers. Families will have a blast competing together in exciting activities we will share at this session. K-2, K-5, K-8, K-12, 3-5, 6-8, 6-12
