Our children have opportunities for STEM at school but there’s so much more to be learned. Did you know that U.S. ranks 25th in math and 17th in science among industrialized nations according to the US Department of Education? Funding and supporting our schools is a big step to these programs but let’s be honest at home we have the ability to explore things so much more in depth with them at times too. Especially as you follow your child’s own interests. But where to start?
We’re sharing 50 STEM Activities for Kids at Home! Plus we’re pinning top STEM ideas on Pinterest as we see them. Be sure to FOLLOW! Go check out all of these resources to incorporate STEM into your home!

Supporting STEM Activities at Home as a Parent
STEM needs to start to become a part of our homes each week throughout our child’s education. Our children need to be confident and interested in science, technology, engineering and math to be potentially more successful as adults in their future jobs.
