Studies have shown that parents have a powerful influence on students’ success in STEM and future careers. Parents and guardians can be advocates and support their child’s engagement in engineering activities if they are given some tools and encouragement. Whether you work with kids in the classroom, an afterschool club, or a community program you can empower families. You can offer hands-on experiences with engineering, send home supplies and activities to try as a family, and share accessible opportunities to explore engineering in the community. Join Linda Kekelis of STEM Next Opportunity Fund and Tara Chklovski of Iridescent to learn about ways to engage families in their children’s STEM experiences.
