Children are natural born scientists. Since they need to figure out how the world works, their boundless curiosity is practically built into their DNA. This means STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) is the perfect fit for most kids of any age.
Sometimes STEM can seem intimidating, but it doesn’t have to mean electronics and robots. For younger kids, STEM is about measuring, observing, counting, building, experimenting, and other simple skills that fill in the gaps of their general knowledge. This is the perfect chance to explore together and fall in love with STEM.
P.S. Did we mention STEM skills translate into more precise vocabulary, better hand eye coordination, increased background knowledge, and other skills necessary for getting ready to read and write?
