Diversity In STEM Outreach Project has partnered with Children’s Museum of Atlanta to host a Family Free Day on Wednesday February 13th to allow access for every child an opportunity to explore the museum without cost being a factor.
We are very excited about this partnership because many of the children we serve and parents we support will experience exploring the museum for the very first time.
Family Free Day is presented by PNC Foundation & The Coca-Cola Foundation supported by CareSource.
What To Expect:
The Atlanta Children’s Museum is a place where curiosity is explored and adventures created. It is an interactive museum where science comes to life. One of our favorite destinations to explore with early learners. Here are some of our favorite pictures captured from our last visit:
Our nonprofit, will be a participating partner where you will get to visit our themed Maker station filled with interactive activities for early learners. Our focus will be on “Everyday STEM at Home” helping parents build on STEM skills at home as it become a part of their day to day lifestyle.
Parents will learn how they can build on important skills STEM offers. For example, parents can teach literacy, directional skills and early math skills when preparing pancakes together at home with their child. Or, visit to your local farmer’s market or grocery store can be a fun way for students to see vibrant colors from fruits and vegetable and farm to table concepts. Learning doesn’t just happen at school it should happen at home too. Parents can play an important role in the development of their child’s educational experience.
We will also feature books to help parents celebrate literacy at home. We will show parents how to merge books and create fun literacy & math skills that’s fun and engaging for early learners. It will also increase a positive parent child engagement. The more time invested in each other will build a stronger relationship.
