STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics — skills that kids learn about throughout elementary school and beyond. These skills are particularly important for young learners because they promote critical thinking and problem solving.
What’s more, when kids develop an interest in STEM, they’ll be more primed to succeed in these subjects throughout their lives (a notable advantage as the world becomes increasingly more technology-driven). These 10 activities can pique their interest and confidence in STEM skills, and make learning feel like play. Your kids will continue to learn about biology, multiplication and division strategies, weather, early physics, and much more at home.
