This resource has everything you need to run a successful Family STEAM Night at your school. Intended for schools that are just introducing their families to the concept of "STEAM," this resource provides easy entry for families to learn about and discuss STEAM concepts at home.

Students and families will make STEAM products at different stations and take them home for further exploration and discussion. The format encourages families to visit all five STEAM stations to “collect them all:” make the product, take the resource, and learn all the while! Each station comes with a parent handout that offers questions and further experiments to try at home. The stations are as follows:

Science: Learn about static electricity

Technology: Explore new apps and websites

Engineering: Build a hot air balloon

Art: Design a hot air balloon

Math: Play card games

Included in this resource are:

- Directions for use

- Materials checklist

- Save the Date (editable)

- Sign in Sheets

- STEAM Night Overview

- Handouts related to each of the station: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math

Not included:

- Materials for implementation. Most materials are available at a school site already.

This product has been successfully implemented in a K-5 school setting.

Model with mathematics. Mathematically proficient students can apply the mathematics they know to solve problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace. In early grades, this might be as simple as writing an addition equation to describe a situation. In middle grades, a student might apply proportional reasoning to plan a school event or analyze a problem in the community. By high school, a student might use geometry to solve a design problem or use a function to describe how one quantity of interest depends on another. Mathematically proficient students who can apply what they know are comfortable making assumptions and approximations to simplify a complicated situation, realizing that these may need revision later. They are able to identify important quantities in a practical situation and map their relationships using such tools as diagrams, two-way tables, graphs, flowcharts and formulas. They can analyze those relationships mathematically to draw conclusions. They routinely interpret their mathematical results in the context of the situation and reflect on whether the results make sense, possibly improving the model if it has not served its purpose.
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. Older students might, depending on the context of the problem, transform algebraic expressions or change the viewing window on their graphing calculator to get the information they need. Mathematically proficient students can explain correspondences between equations, verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs or draw diagrams of important features and relationships, graph data, and search for regularity or trends. Younger students might rely on using concrete objects or pictures to help conceptualize and solve a problem. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, "Does this make sense?" They can understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches.
Present information, findings, and supporting evidence such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
