Every year, we sponsor two Market Math events at the Roche Bros. Supermarket in Acton—one for 3rd graders; one for 5th graders. MM features hands-on "super" market activities, showing how classroom math applies to the "real world."
In the spring and fall, AB PIP STEM hosts Nature Walks for students in grades K-6 accompanied by a parent. Siblings are welcome to this afternoon event, guide by Tom Tidman from the Acton Natural Resources Dept.
Family Math Games
Family Math Games is an indoor winter event at the Boxborough Sargent Memorial Library for all grades, K-12. AB PIP STEM student volunteers teach Domino Math, Sudoku, KenKen and paper-based coding games.
Every two years, we sponsor a Discover STEM event. Discover STEM is a reverse science fair, geared for students in grades 7 through 12. Scientists and technologists from the community set up booths at the high school to share the latest technology.
STEM Book Club
In the winter, we hold a STEM book club discussion at the Discovery Museum for teens and adults. Past titles include How We Got to Now: Six Innovations that Made the Modern World, Last Child in the Woods, How to Think Like Leonardo Da Vinci, and Letters to a Young Scientist.
