National PTA's STEM + Families® program delivers access and hands-on exposure to science, technology, engineering and math to engage families and inspire students to pursue career opportunities in STEM fields.
PTA’s vision is that all students have the family and community support needed to access and pursue STEM opportunities and careers.
We want to foster passion for science, technology, engineering, and math through fun activities and by involving families in these experiences together. Our STEM initiative will engage students, families, and communities in opportunities to explore... inspire... empower... and educate... STEM possibilities.

Simple Ways to Support Students in STEM
Family members don’t need to be an engineer, doctor, or scientist to support children’s exploration of STEM learning. Help support STEM education by simply:
Setting clear and high expectations of student performance
Creating supportive learning environments at home
Asking questions that help to guide the exploration of courses students need to pursue STEM career pathways
