Developing Cognitive Thinking
Our free STEM learning projects include how kids can develop cognitive brain connections using inexpensive modeling clay to learn about shapes while counting their finds. Studying and tasting ordinary apples can help children engage in science experiments with our free science learning ideas.
Help even youngest children learn about spatial relationships. Engage the family in making puzzles at home or in the classroom from castoff place mats. Our activities for ages 2 and older help children learn how the science behind magnets can help them create art.
STEM Learning Benefits
A National Science Foundation-funded study reports that Early STEM learning can set the stage for later success in school. Hands-on group activities can help children improve socio-emotional skills when they work together. Recycling used items for STEM experiments introduces children to the basics of environmental stewardship on a planet with finite natural resources.
