Elementary Programs

Serving all Chicagoland Area Elementary Schools

We Provide Hands-On STEAM Workshops

Our workshops are part of the STEAM initiative and focus on a Scientific approach to Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. All HTHT - Science Made Fun workshops are aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). High Touch High Tech teaches Science education in a FUN way through hands-on exploration!

High Touch High Tech Chicagoland provides fun science field trips that transform your classroom into a Living Laboratory - the place where we learn by doing! Because programs are centered on the individual child's experience, many of them can be adapted, upon request, to meet other grade levels as well. Our experiments are structured to use materials that are safe and easy to identify. Students can duplicate many of these experiments at home with their parents.

We look forward to visiting your classroom soon!
