This column features profiles of award-winning science programs and teachers. This month’s issue describes a weekend event that introduces families to science concepts in an outdoor setting.
What a great way to introduce the public about what STEM is all about, a way to engage parents in their student’s learning experiences, and to enjoy a beautiful day in the park. This article shows how this was done starting with planning, funding, getting a location, getting volunteers, and an activity overview. The reader learns about how to get the word out as well. This is a great article and a great idea. The only thing missing is getting approval by the school district first so they are in agreement and get some of the recognition.

What an interesting article!! STEM Day in the Park is an excellent way to get families involved in STEM activities. This was funded by a Toyota Tapestry grant but can be funded in other ways. It reminded me of a daytime version of a school science night!! All kinds of activities could be experienced by children and their families. What a fun way to learn about STEM!
