STEM is everywhere. Have you ever really thought about how often our kids come across something STEM related in their day? Science is found in their natural world – the trees, plants, butterflies, erosion on the creek bed, and so much more. Technology is part of our kids’ every day lives – iPads, Kindles, computer programming, telescopes, and all the way back to the invention of the wheel. Engineering is found in the construction of bridges, homes, buildings, and other infrastructures. Math is a crucial skill to help them balance checkbooks, buy groceries, budgeting, and so much more.


I had a hard time choosing the STEM resources to include in this post as here were so many great activities, sites, books, and toys to choose from. Let’s explore together…
