MicrosoftNational PTA and Microsoft are partnering to empower families to support student success and fill a critical gap in STEM education. The 2018 National PTA STEM + Families Tech Grants sponsored by Microsoft will award $1,000 to 35 local PTAs to host a STEM + Families Tech Night in the spring of 2018.
