National PTA and Microsoft are partnering to empower families to support student success and fill a critical gap in STEM education. The 2018 National PTA STEM + Families Tech Grants sponsored by Microsoft, will award $1,000 to 35 local PTAs to host a STEM + Families Tech Night in the spring of 2018. This Tech Night event will bring students and families together to either learn exciting new Minecraft coding skills or to build a robotic finger (two different program models).

National PTA will provide you with all the support and training necessary to host a successful STEM + Families Tech Night. No prior computer or technology experience needed! Your PTA makes sure all families and students are welcomed to the event, coordinates the student and family technology experience, and arranges for food and prizes.
