STEAM for Kids
I always knew I wanted to start teaching my kids Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) concepts early in their lives. My husband and I are both engineers, and we were raised in families who supported and encouraged a strong early foundation in STEAM.
I think my family’s enthusiasm for math and science fostered a belief in myself that I could do STEAM. I was brave and signed up for the advanced math and science classes and applied for engineering school in college, even when I was one of the only females in the classes.
I want to give my children the self-confidence they need, so they know that they too can do or be anything they can imagine. I want my kids to enjoy learning about math, science, and technology and become good at these subjects through practice and patience. So, I’m starting to teach them young (I started these experiments when my son was two years old).
We’re doing simple, easy and fun experiments that anyone can do with materials you probably already have at home. We’re also reading and sharing our reviews of STEAM children’s picture books, playing with and reviewing STEAM toys, and visiting and sharing our experiences at children’s science museums. I hope you’ll join us by encouraging your kids to love STEAM too!

Reading to my kids is usually my favorite part of the day. We love to read picture books together, and it is even better when the books have STEAM concepts or themes included.
