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 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 to teach them young (my daughter is two and my son is four).

We’re doing simple, easy and fun experiments that anyone can do with materials you probably already have at home. We’re also reading lots of STEAM children’s picture books, and visitng Children’s science museums. I hope you’ll follow along with my blog posts and join us by encouraging your kids to love STEAM too!
