STEM + Families

National PTA’s STEM + Families initiative increases access to STEM education and careers, especially among under-represented youth, by developing, evaluating and sharing effective ways to engage families in STEM experiences, while working with partners to improve access to STEM school and community learning environments.

PTA’s vision is that all students have the family and community support needed to access and pursue STEM opportunities and careers.
