Serving All LA County Elementary Schools
Science Education In A FUN Way Through Hands-on Exploration!
High Touch High Tech delivers 75 minute, in-school science field-trips that transform your classroom into a Living Laboratory! Kids become a real scientist and learn by doing the actual experiments. These programs are totally hands-on and totally participatory by each child.
And because our programs are centered on the individual child's experience, many programs can be adapted, upon request, to meet the needs of other grade levels as well.
Our experiments are structured to use materials that are safe and easy to identify. Students can duplicate many of these experiments at home with their parents.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can teachers step out of the classroom while the Scientist is facilitating the program?
A: Teachers are requested to remain in the classroom throughout the program. We encourage teachers to participate and rely on their feedback to assist in our efforts to continuously improve upon our FUN and exciting hands on science experiences.
Q: How should I set up my classroom in preparation for the Scientist?
A: Our Scientist and your students will need either desk tops or table tops at which to conduct their hands-on science experiments. Please arrange the desks in groups of four if possible. We also ask that you have a Chalkboard or Dry Erase board available for use by our Scientist. Note that some programs may require access to water; therefore, access to a sink and tap would also be helpful.
Q: Can I pay for a HTHT in-school field trip with grant dollars that have been awarded to my school?
A: Yes. Many schools pay for their High Touch High Tech programs with grant dollars received via the 21st Century Grant, Eisenhower Grant and several Local & State Grants.
