High Touch High Tech:
Science Education In A FUN Way Through "hands-on" Exploration! Our programs are designed to meet current Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE). As science standards are currently evolving, we will be happy to tailor our programs to meet your school's specific curricular needs. Please scroll down for how it works and to view a list of programs.
High Touch High Tech delivers 90 minute, in-school science fieldtrips 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 by each child.
High Touch High Tech provides all equipment and materials in this supply intensive educational experience. Students receive digital science certificates and many programs provide take home experiments. We can present in a science lab, spare room, media center or your classroom.
Motivate children to investigate the natural wonders of science!
Our regular rate during the shool year is $9.00 per student. If there are less than 60 students per day, there is a minimum charge of $540.00 per day. In addition, there is a $15.00 per day, NOT per student, supply surcharge.
Teachers and parent chaperones participate free of charge. Schools currently receiving outside grants may use them for High Touch High Tech programs.

Investigate how fun and interesting science can be through hands-on learning!
High Touch High Tech scientists try to see each class individually and can conduct up to three 90 minute sessions or 4 70 minute sessions in a day with no more than 34 students in each session. Depending on the number of classes per grade we can stay for several days.
An example of a 90 minute schedule per day is
8:30 – 10:00
10:15 – 11:45
12:30 - 2:00
An example of a 70 minute schedule per day is
8:30 - 9:40
9:50 - 11:00
11:10 - 12:20
1:00 - 2:30
Times can be adjusted to better fit your schedule. We can stop for lunch and/or specials. Sometimes a brown bag lunch helps to not stop the program in the middle.
*Some programs may be adapted to different grade levels
