High Touch High Tech:
Science Education In A FUN Way Through Hands-on Exploration!
High Touch High Tech provides all equipment and materials in this supply intensive, educational experience.
We offer fun and educational 60 minute, hands-on, interactive in-school field trips. Students receive take home experiments and certificates of program completion.
Our fee is $9.00 per student and may be paid by parents (as they would for a regular, out-of-school field trip), outside grants, school board, PTA/PTO boosters and student fundraisers.
Our Programs incorporate STEM, STEAM, and Common Core while making The Next Generation Sunshine State Standards FUN!
High Touch High Tech's programs are all designed with the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards and Common Core in mind. We know what the students need to learn in science. Each and every program addresses these standards.
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.
We are now accepting reservations for the 2021/2022 school year in Tampa, Citrus Park, Brandon, Plant City, Sarasota, Manatee, Clearwater, St. Pete, Wesley Chapel, Lakeland, Bartow, and the surrounding counties.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can programs be adapted for different grade levels?
A: Yes! Although programs may be listed on our brochure for a specific grade, they can be easily adapted for all grades.
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. 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.
