STEM at Home

In This Section


Don’t limit the STEM fun your family has to the school – bring STEM excitement home! National PTA and Bayer have developed five hands-on science experiments families can do together for minimal cost.

Your PTA should be able to purchase the supplies for 100 take-home science kits (“STEM at Home Kits”) for around $175. Check out this spreadsheet (COMING SOON!) for more information on the type and cost of supplies you need.

Find detailed Facilitator’s Guides below that go step-by-step through each of the five experiments. Also, be sure to watch the “how-to” video for each experiment before beginning!
