“STEM is just fluff. All they do is play and build things!”
STEM is a Lot of Things
STEM is rich with collaboration, fun, creative, full of teamwork, and so much more.
- It’s not spontaneous.
- It’s not cookie-cutter.
- It’s not just building stuff.
- It’s not just fun!
- It’s not just about construction!
There’s a Place for Spontaneity
However, I have the advantage of being the STEM lab teacher and I have 43 cabinets, all full of materials. If you really want to start with STEM I am here to help you, but do plan on thinking about the challenge, gathering materials, and getting your kids prepped for this adventure. They will take care of the rest!
Projects Do Look a Little Bit Alike
“Expect the unexpected and designs that will astound you.”
Yes, You do Build Things in STEM Class
Grrrr…..”All they do in STEM class is just build stuff.”
Kids Love STEM
“All they do is play and have fun. No wonder kids love it so much!”
Like I said, We Do Build Things
“You are so lucky! Kids don’t do any paper work so you have no grades!”
