There is a big push towards STEM education in schools now. Literally, it stands for science, technology, engineering, maths and looks to encourage little (and not so little) minds to gain an awareness and hands on training in these areas in an effort to encourage the take up of tertiary study in these subjects. Down the track for our kids, this means they could end up generating and contributing to scientific developments and innovations for the future.

There’s no better way of creating a great atmosphere at your school or club than holding a community event that everyone is invited to.

When you break it down, there are few fundraisers and events where families get to spend time together, being active together but without having to spend money.

What is a Family Challenge Night? A family challenge night is an event where families (parents and kids) participate in a series of events against other families.
