Plastic Cups: http://amzn.to/2ofeGff Jumbo Popsicle Sticks: http://amzn.to/2oeYjiH Wooden Blocks: http://amzn.to/2ngqrCL Stem Kids: http://amzn.to/2of7TCe Today we are doing a S.T.E.M. activity. S.T.E.M. is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education. For this activity we will need 1 - building blocks 2 - plastic cups (we used 3oz size) 3 - and large craft sticks S.T.E.M. activities are great to do with your kids because the skills and knowledge in each discipline are essential for student success. But also because these fields are deeply intertwined in the real world and in how students learn most effectively. We had three building challenges for our activity. Challenge #1 build a tower with only one block at the base Challenge#2 build the tallest tower you can with a square shaped base Challenge #3 build the strongest tower you can we tested the strength of our towers by seeing whose tower could hold the most books. Building with blocks is great even at a young age, it develops motor skills and hand-eye coordination, spatial skills, a capacity for creative and divergent thinking, social skills, and language skills.

Next step is: The "RoboGuts™ S.T.E.A.M. Education Program" sold direct on http://www.R2Pv1.com/ ... the "RoboGuts™ S.T.E.A.M. Education Program" is a series of experiments to help you learn how to use and control several different electronic components with FREE simple BASIC language structured programming samples, wiring diagrams and 3D printer files for the X-Projects. After completing a few experiments you are ready to start building toys and animatronics using the X-Projects for starting points.

One, I love this series! I'm doing some research to create a similar series for work (I work with kids at a public library), and I'm getting some great ideas and pointers here - this series is so well done. Two, is it just me, or do these kids have some AMAZING fine motor skills?! WOW! Keep up the great work, both kids AND creators!
I cannot wait to try this with my kindergarten class. Thank you!

STEM concepts integrated with storytelling and the art of puppetry encourages children to think in a more connected and holistic way https://happybrightkids.com/elementary-school-assembly-programs.html

Of course talents vary from person to person but so many kids sadly believe they aren't good at math or science. Doing activities like this with kids at different schools has shown me that lots of kids can do much more than they thought.
