50 Stem Labs - Science Experiments for Kids
This is a collection of 50 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) science experiments for kids. Recommended for grades 3 and up. Each one has a snappy title, a brief description of the task required, the rules, and grading rubrics. Please note that these are not recipes for projects where you just follow the steps to complete an activity. These are critical thinking challenges. Students will have to figure out how to defeat each task.
Team Building Activities for STEM Groups
This book provides 50 fun and inexpensive activities that have proven themselves through the excitement, engagement, and teamwork building that we have seen at every event where we have used them. With each activity, you will see important STEM concepts such as the design process, understanding sequential logic, and comparing word problems to stories. Questions for discussion are added to each activity to help participants gain an understanding of these concepts.
