Sometimes you don't have enough time to do a full experiment during class. But, you still want to be able to demonstrate the lesson! All of these science experiments can be done in about 5 minutes! Plus, you likely already have everything you need to do them. If you don't have everything you need, all...

Five-year-olds are enthusiastic learners and problems solvers. Their imaginations expand into a desire to solve problems in creative ways.

Goldie Blox isn't the only STEM toy focused on encouraging girls to explore science, technology, engineering, and math. There is a big uptick in engineering-focused toys to appeal to girls. While your young ladies are...

This one isn't as STEM related as most of our projects, but I think it's such a cool craft! We recently made these mini terrarium necklaces when learning about the water cycle. I still had tons of these tiny jars, so I was brainstorming other possible projects to do with these jars. That's when we...
