Homecroft Elementary School Holds STEM + Families Science Festival

Loading ....


The festival included 10 experiment stations for parents and their kids to learn more about science. Families engaged with students from the Denfeld DNA FIRST Robotics Team, St. Louis County Youth in Action, and 4-H. The FTC CyberHawks Robotics and UMD provided additional STEM activities, and the Denfeld DNA demonstrated robots.

“STEM + Science Festivals are fun, family-friendly events that spark passion for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) through activities and experiments for BOTH students & their families!,” a news release about the event says.   

Homecroft families participated in the event with volunteers from throughout the community, including local leaders, community groups, and student organizations from other high schools and colleges.

This is the third time the event has been held and Duluth PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association) Council President Stacey DeRoche says both students and parents have enjoyed it.

“I think that parents are really surprised, and excited that their kids are so engaged. We found that families that came, they stayed for a couple hours because they were so engaged. That hands-on piece is essential,” said DeRoche.

The festival is made possible with a $3500 grant from Bayer awarded to the Duluth PTSA Council.

DeRoche says they hope to host it next year at Myers-Wilkins Elementary.
