STEAM Family Science NIght

I tried to implement a series of after school nights in our alternative education program this year, with little success. I only had 1 parent ever show up. To be fair, we only have about 60 students in our program and get about half of them to show up to parent teacher conferences because we tell them they have to come.
Does anyone have a great way to "hook" people to get them to show up? The whole point of this experience was to increase family interest and support for our students.

We had a lot of success at my school when we fed them to attend an evening event.
It could be pizza, and companies like Dominos offer discounts for group orders.

There is a nice story that Joel Barker tells about the school PS 121 at N
York that I strongly recomend you to see.
Don´t give up and first try to start with something interesting for the
parents, then add the familly, then the students.... till you are able to
receive support from a whole community.
