Celebrate the Fun in STEM on National STEM Day!

Posted by EiE Team on Thursday, November 4, 2021

We know that children benefit from strong science, technology, engineering and math skills and, as we celebrate STEM Day on November 8, we’re excited to share fun and engaging activities for at-home and classroom learning. 

Find free activities for exploring engineering at home! You’ll be challenged to design solutions to everyday problems. What will you design? A zip line? A speaker? A slow-drip watering system? These activities are a great way for your family to develop skills like critical thinking, communication, creativity, and persistence. They’re also a lot of fun! 

For extra guidance about how to do the activities, visit our Video Collection!

Explore engineering on the go! It takes only a few minutes to engineer some fun! Inspired by classic games like I Spy and Charades, each activity is sure to spark family conversations. You’ll learn about the technologies all around us and the types of engineers who design them. 

Take the Careers for Engineers Quiz! Designed for learners ages 7-12, our interactive quiz is a great way to explore STEM career options. Do you like to imagine things? Do you like to solve problems? You might like to be an engineer. Engineers are people who make things to solve problems, such as headphones, medicines, and robots. Discover how your interests connect to engineering. What kind of engineering career might be a match for you?
