STEM activities (activities with elements of science, technology, engineering, and math) help children see that science and math can have a creative element, too. In today’s world, technology seeps into everything we do, and children can be taught to approach all of their learning through the lens of scientific exploration.
However, we don’t always have time for involved STEM activities that take weeks to complete (although those are beneficial as well!).
But if you’re simply looking for a few easy and quick STEM activities for your kiddos, you’ll appreciate the quick STEM lessons you’ll find in this post.
