Every November, the AB Science Team hosts a Science Family Night. At AB PIP STEM, we endorse Family Science Night and encourage participation.
At Family Science Night, high school students from the ABRHS Science, Environthon, iGEM and Resource Force Teams present fun and interactive science activities to elementary-aged students who live in Acton and Boxborough.
Activities include electronics, biology and computer science to name a few. For example, elementary students may learn how to:
Extract DNA from cells
Identify ancient fossils
Design a mini-catapult
AB PIP STEM and Acton-Boxborough Regional High School sponsored MIT engineering workshops for 10th graders. The workshop, entitled "What is Engineering?" was led by MIT engineering students. After an overview of engineering disciplines, the presenters explained why engineering is a rewarding career and facilitated a hands-on activity.
AB PIP STEM offered the MIT engineering workshops through an IBM Community Volunteer Grant. The workshops, open to girls and boys, were sponsored in part by the MIT Women in Engineering (WIE) Initiative.
