The word STEM is a new term that we did not have in school when we were growing up. It stands for Science, Engineering, Technology and Math. STEM is an educational philosophy that ties all of these subjects together with lessons that have projects and experiments that create an immersive learning experience.
STEM teaches important skills that our children can learn in real life and that they will use in everyday situations. STEM gets children excited about the subjects that used to be boring and “nerdy!”
I have been blown away by how many fun and exciting activities are available in the STEM genre. It really does make the subjects we dreaded learning as children, exciting and creative today. If you have children that enjoy STEM activities and projects, they will love finding different activities to do to go with specific topics.
If you are learning about electricity in your science or history curriculum your children will love these electricity projects with a STEM twist:
We have created a FREE Electricity Guided Drawing Activity which will be perfect for any student interested in learning more about electricity. This free unit will help your student combine their love of art and science all while learning and memorizing 10 important electrical terms.
We love these fun electrical kits to use in our homeschool during free time. Some of these are over 40% OFF!
