STEM for Kids
I always knew I wanted to start teaching my kids Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) concepts early in their lives. My husband and I are both engineers, and we were both raised in families who supported and encouraged a strong foundation in STEM. I think our family’s encouragement in math and science shaped our belief in ourselves – to be brave and sign up for the advanced math and science classes and apply for engineering school in college.
I want to give my children the self-confidence they need, so they know that they can do or be anything they want. I want my kids to enjoy learning about math and science and become good at these subjects through practice and patience, so I’m starting them young (my daughter is one and my son is three).
We’re doing simple, easy and fun experiments that anyone can do with materials you usually already have at home. I hope you’ll join us and try these experiments with your kids too!
