STEAM Experiments

Our STEAM experiments are always simple, easy, and fun! We try to use as few supplies as possible, and they’re usually things you already have around our house! Our goal is to make STEAM experiments accessible to all families, and kids of all ages – from babies to toddlers to preschoolers and beyond!
