28 Days of STEM Activities and STEAM Activities for Kids

We have a bit of a tradition here at Left Brain Craft Brain. Every February when the winter seems like it will never end, we warm things up with a bit of STEAM. And STEM, too, with 28 Days of STEM Activities and STEAM Activities for Kids. Be sure to follow along this month as I share 60+ Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math projects that will get your kids and your classrooms excited about learning again. I’ve partnered with a huge crew of creative bloggers and we’ll be sharing the coolest STEM & STEAM activities you’ll see all year.

Why Do Kids Need STEM & STEAM?

STEM is the abbreviation for Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math. In STEAM we add an A for Art, too. Both are integrated approaches to learning that encourage students to think more broadly about real-world problems. This interdisciplinary approach has helped create innovations like the iPhone, the original laptop computer, and is even revolutionizing cooking in third-world countries, and improving air quality as a result.

It helps students ask questions, connect the dots, problem-solve, think creatively, and be innovative. And not only can STEAM save the world, but it can also save our kids too by making their future bright. STEM jobs are expected to grow by 16% in the US between 2014 and 2024 compared to only 11% for other sectors*. And right now, science & engineering careers earn more than double the income of the median job in the United States.*

So let’s get more science, technology, engineering, art, and math into our kids’ lives. Ready for the fun?!?

But don’t worry, they’re still going to be integrated projects that check off more than one bucket!
