What does STEM mean?
There are plenty of fun science and math activities, but what sets an activity apart as STEM?
First, STEM stand for science, technology, engineering, and math. STEAM adds art to the mix.
Most STEAM projects have a mix of at least two of these subjects and many combine them all together. STEAM projects are fun, promote problem-solving and creativity, and are all hands-on.

STEM activities make fun family challenges
You most often see STEM activities used for educational purposes.
Of course! Because STEM teaches kids so much.
But, it doesn’t have to be for the classroom only. STEM projects also make fun activities for families. I’ve always enjoyed my time with my girls when we do STEM activities.
