STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math)

Inspire children to explore the world around them! STEM activities don't take a PhD; instead, they take a little creativity and a healthy dose of curiosity.

Watch how students demonstrate core science, technology, engineering and math concepts using simple, everyday tools. Students will learn how to ask questions, create hypothesis, test, and record their findings. Create easy STEM explorations in your afterschool program so that young investigators build on their budding science, technology, engineering and math skills!
