Why Do STEM Activities?
STEM activities encourage experimentation and hands-on learning. STEM gives kids a chance to apply previously learned knowledge and can help them better understand concepts and ideas they may be learning in school.
Not only that, but STEM (and STEAM) projects give children a chance to explore ideas, work together, and to problem solve. These are skills that are needed as children become adults.
On top of all the great benefits, STEM is fun!
