STEM Engineering Activities for Kids
If you are looking for STEM engineering challenges to engage students, you will love these sets of STEM activities that use all types of household materials. STEM engineering tasks are not just about engaging the students in a fun activity, the teacher needs to reach inside and help students identify the science, engineering, mathematical, or technology application. Great for STEM Specialities, STEM Pull-out programs, Science Camp, and Afterschool Stem Programs.
