We Come To Your School!
High Touch High Tech offers fun and educational 90 minute in-school science "field trips" that transform your classroom into a Living Laboratory! Kids become scientists and learn by doing the actual experiments. These programs are totally hands-on and totally participatory ey each child.

Our fee is $7.00 per student; teachers and parent chaperones participate free of charge. Parents or the PTA/PTO usually pay the fees. Schools currently receiving outside grants may use them for High Touch High Tech programs.

Series Discount Special:
Book 3 or more programs per grade and receive $0.50 off per student per program.

High Touch High Tech provides all equipment and materials in this supply intensive educational experience. Each student receives a science certificate, and many programs provide take home experiments. Reservations are required and must be accompanied by a $50.00 non-refundable deposit, which gets credited to the balance upon completion, to hold your field trip space.
