STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) camps are popular again, but a child doesn’t need to attend a formal STEM program to increase STEM fluency.
Activate your child’s STEM learning by asking your child to predict, observe, collect information or test hypotheses. This can happen when you cook supper, go to a zoo, take a hike or boat on a lake.
Informal opportunities can trigger curiosity and interest as well as classroom settings. STEM learning can happen anytime, anywhere. A parent doesn’t need to be STEM-fluent to nurture a STEM-smart child!
