STEM Education and College/Career Readiness
What innovative ideas!
As a former member of a STEM teaching team, I understand and appreciate the transformative power this kind of curriculum can have on a classroom
The concept is wonderful…
I think you’ve got a great idea–I especially like the music…
Timely, relevant and NEEDED.
Lifestyle Learning is at the forefront of an educational revolution
As a father of a 9-year old…I think this is a project that tries to address a huge need.
…this is one of the most innovative and original ways to get this content across to young people that I have seen.
I love it.
I like what I am seeing, it would fit middle school very well…
This seems to be the forefront of a new wave of education – outside of school learning. This career goal program would dovetail perfectly.
…am excited to see how much effort you’ve put into inspiring others to pursue careers in science.
… I love the idea and many schools really need something to help them motivate students.
I think you have an interesting approach that is not being met by many school programs.
I am very impressed, motivated and excited by the content on your website…I am seriously impressed.
…are well on your way to helping many students as they explore what they will do with their lives beyond school…
…the program is…would really give the students a clear picture of where they are and what they need…
STEM Activities for Snow Days!
Much of the country is currently being hit with an arctic blast which is bringing along frigid temperatures, freezing winds, and SNOW!!! If your area is under a winter storm watch, and you anticipate activities to be cancelled and schools to be closed, take advantage of the abundance of the STEM related resource falling right outside your window! We’ve rounded up some great snow-day activities to teach children about math, science, and all things STEM! Most use supplies commonly found around the home, but if there are any that you don’t currently have don’t forget to add them to your snow day shopping list!
Thinkfun has great activities especially handy if you have preschoolers in the house. Grow an ice tower, make an indoor snow storm, or experiment on how mittens keep your hands warm. Young ones will marvel at the experiments you conduct with them with basic household items like ice and shortening!
Fun-A-Day has a fun activity that teaches not just about the geometric structure of snowflakes, but engages kids interested in art as well. Build a snowflake using shapes and make a great wall decoration at the same time!
Groovy Lab in A Box knows kids will love learning about crystallization while making their own snowflakes with borax! Make sure you don’t miss out on their recipe for Snow Ice Cream!
Little Bins for Little Hands offers a ton of activities all themed around snowmen! Take their love for building an outdoor snowman indoors with exploration activities such as fizzing snowman, melting snowman slime, foaming snowmen, and launching snowmen!
For those who seem to struggle, here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to make a great snowman! Remind your kids about the shapes, sizes, and proportions to make the perfect snowman!
Once a snowman is created, kids love “building” an igloo or other types of protective forts from their snowball fights! Get your kids interested in construction and engineering with this guide!
How do you incorporate STEM into you snow play? We hope everyone stays safe and warm!
