Below you’ll find answers to the questions we get asked the most about Houston Science Festival – Casa to College.
The Houston Science Festival is our way of connecting our vibrant Hispanic culture with interactive science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) activities for students in grades 5th-12th and their parents. The goal is to help families explore STEM activities and STEM pathways while providing the support they need to succeed.
Be prepared to meet other individuals and communities with a similar interest in these topics as you. Along with a taste of Hispanic cuisine, we will also be providing family-friendly STEM activities such as live demonstrations, workshops, and multidisciplinary collaborations. Hispanic food will also be available for purchase from food trucks.
On top of school supplies, our FREE technology kit will contain one of the following: a 7” tablet, a Chromebook, or a printer.
Thanks to a private grant and in collaboration with Canary Academy Online this year, Bridges to Science is able to bring this science festival experience to home educated students in grades 5-12 from disadvantaged, historically underrepresented, or low-income background. These students, along with their parents, are free to participate in all the activities, including the giveaway.
Admission, parking, and participation in the workshops and the giveaway are all free.
Students will explore STEM activities from The Magic of Equilateral Triangles to Fossil Sort to Domino Dissection Puzzles in a collaborative environment with experienced STEM professionals and inspirational volunteers!
