A-STEM Family Night - we've added the Arts!
A-STEM Family Night will be held on February 2, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Future of Flight Aviation Center. The Institute of Flight (formerly the Future of Flight Foundation) is hosting this FREE event that will give you and your family a chance to see some of the amazing STEAM professions and products that are being created and used right in your back yard.
Online registration is available here!
At A-STEM Night we will:
- Engage families in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) with fun, hands-on activities.
- Increase public appreciation and understanding of the roles that STEAM plays in our daily lives.
- Introduce children at an early age, and throughout the K-12 spectrum, to the many career opportunities in STEAM.
- Increase the interest of parents, and other caregivers, to encourage children to pursue STEAM careers.
- Provide age appropriate resources to support attendees with the tools to pursue their interests in STEAM career planning and practice.
A-STEM Family Night seeks to help families better understand the world through science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics by introducing parents and children to a range of practical and important skills necessary for a career in these fields:
- Asking questions and seeking answers to these questions.
- Making sense of a problem and designing solutions to address the problem.
- Developing and using models.
- Planning and carrying out experiments and fair tests.
- Making observations, evaluating data, and communicating findings.
- Using a design process to propose or improve a solution.
- Using appropriate tools and techniques to design, build, and test.
- Understanding the relationships between science, technology, engineering, the arts, math, society, and the natural world.
