If your kids are like mine, they’re so ready for the first week of summer. But by week 2, boredom has already set in and they start fighting and begging for screen time.. And every year I vow to be more organized about our summer activities before this happens, but I’m juggling working from home, feeding my family, and a million other household chores. So this year I made a list of fun STEM activities for the summer and the game plan is to try a few of them each week.
Why STEM projects? Because they will help prevent summer brain drain and promote a little healthy stimulation. Take the kids out of the classroom setting and they will be amazed to see science, technology, engineering, and math in action in a setting that feels nothing like school.
