STEM Fridays - Sponsored by the De Portola PTA STEM Committee
Fri, Feb 9 2:35pm-3:35pm
de Portola Elementary - Room 11

What is being offered?

The De Portola PTA's STEM Committee is excited to open up an opportunity for students grades K-6 to sign up for STEM Lab/Khan Academy Lab. We are offering this sign up as a 4 week session starting at January 19-February 9. It will take place immediately after school from 2:35pm - 3:35pm, and will be broken up by grade level. Part of that 1 hour class will be spent working on a lab, and students will rotate between their designated lab and the computer lab for work on Khan Academy.  The STEM offerings by grade level are listed below:

Kindergarten-3rd Grade

  • Science Lab (life science, chemistry, biology, etc.)

4th Grade-6th Grade

  • Drone Lab (coding, soldering, building drone, etc.)

Space Availability

We would like to ensure that this is a great learning opportunity for your children, so given our current volunteer resources and space, we are capping how many students can attend this session. If we find there are more parent volunteers available, we can add more slots to the Kindergarten-3rd Grade program for future sessions that are offered. 

Kindergarten-3rd Grade: 25 students

4th-6th Grade: 20 students


How to Sign Up

To sign up your child, please sign up in either K-3rd Grade Students or 4th-6th Grade Students. In the note section, please write your child's name and grade (e.g. "Ethan, 3rd). To sign up more than one child in K-3rd Grade, write both names and grades in the note section (e.g. "Ethan, 3rd; Natalie K).  Please sign up by Thursday so we can plan accordingly for that many students. 


To sign up to volunteer, you click "Sign Up" in the parent volunteers section.  


Parent Volunteers

This STEM program is run completely by parent volunteers, and we need your help to make sure everything runs smoothly. We are asking for parent volunteers to commit to this 4 week session. To help keep the kids engaged and focused, we are asking for 8 parent volunteers. 


Khan Academy Sign Up

To make sure your child is ready for Friday, we are asking that you please sign up for a Khan Academy account prior to Friday if they are signing up for this session. Attached to this sign up are step-by-step instructions  for signing up for a parent account and creating an account for your child(ren). 


Thank you!
