The goal of the Pi Day Family STEAM Night event is to ignite curiosity in STEM and the Arts through the mathematical patterns found all around us.

Communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking are important skills to develop for 21st-century careers. At Hernandez Middle School (HMS), all students work on developing these skills throughout their classes. At the STEM event, participants will engage in activities related to one of the 5C’s that shows connections between STEM, the Arts, and their daily lives. Possible sessions include: exploring fractals, and learning a math based magic trick.

 *This event is closed to the general public and is only open to HMS families. If you would like to volunteer or learn more about how to support future STEM nights, click the button above.
