We bring hands-on science programs to children in Grades K-5, teaching science the way it should be: interactive, motivating, FUN, and thought-provoking!
“This was incredible! The children had so much fun!”
Grade K Teacher, Boyden Elementary School, Walpole, MA
Our programs are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards, the MA Science Curriculum Frameworks and the RI Grade Span Expectations.
We offer in school workshops with an enhanced COVID-19 safety protocol. Our scientists come to your classroom, camp, or after-school program with all the equipment to engage children with hands-on experiments.
In-School workshops are 60-75 minutes long and often include take-home materials!
We can present up to four classes through a typical school day.
After-School Programs or Assemblies can meet for a single session or over an 8-10 week period, and are suitable for groups of 10-25 children in per session.

COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLHigh Touch High Tech remains committed to the health and safety of your staff and students. Safety precautions preventing the spread of COVID-19 are our greatest priority. For this reason, our practices to help minimize the spread of potentially harmful germs include:
- In School workshops have been shortened to allow for adequate cleaning and disinfecting supplies between classes
- Workshops have been modified to eliminate or reduce communal supplies
- All workshop participants and teachers are requested to wear masks and sanitize/wash hands pre- and post the workshop
- Science Instructors will wear masks and practice social distancing
- Science Instructors will be screened daily for any symptoms
- We will adapt to your school's additional health safety guidelines, if any.
Motivate children to investigate the natural wonders of science!

(explore many different forms of energy including sound, light and electricity).
"Thank you for the fantastic forensics program. As a result of your activity, the kids in our library haven't just watched CSI, they've lived it! If there were any "bad guys" within the vicinity of our building, they'd have been apprehended immediately! But you really enabled the kids to grasp the concepts of forensics and put them to fun and practical use. Thanks again for a decidedly different and enjoyable Vacation Week program."
Children's Librarian, Maynard MA Public Library
