Daniel Webster PTA
Did you know that careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are growing more than twice as fast as the rest of the job market? You already know how valuable STEM is to your child’s future success . . . but do you know how much fun it can be?
Thanks to a grant from National PTA and littleBits, Daniel Webster PTA is thrilled to offer Invention Night to Webster families free of charge. Invention Night is also part of Webster STEAM Week. (STEAM = STEM + Art)
National PTA and littleBits are partnering to empower families to support student success and fill a critical gap in STEM education.
- Opportunity for parents and children to get connected to technology enrichment
- Families can participate in fun, hands-on STEM activities
- Goal is to reinvent education through play
- Invention Night kits are all-inclusive to make this process simple and fun

Come discover your passion for STEM through activities and experiments for BOTH students and parents. Food and beverages will be available for sale.
Due to space limitations, we ask each family to register in advance. Questions? Contact Daniel Webster PTA officers or email [email protected]
To register, click the "Sign Up" box for Hour 1 or Hour 2, then click the "Submit and Sign Up" button at the bottom. On the next page, provide contact details and number of participants.
Parents are encouraged to help their children with the activities. Families can help each other as well. There is no set number of "inventions" which every student needs to complete. Unfortunately, nobody will be able to take their "inventions" home, but based on demand, the PTA may organize similar events in the future to allow families more opportunities to play and explore.
