Happy National STEM Day, celebrated annually on November 8th! This year to support you in celebrating we’re excited to share this list of fun and engaging activities for anytime learning in class, at home, or on the go!
EiE Family Activities— Working on these activities as a family will help your children develop creative problem-solving skills, collaboration skills, and resilience. These activities were designed with families in mind so whether this is your first or hundredth engineering challenge, you are sure to have fun – you might just surprise each other with your creativity and skills.
With our At Home Activities, 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.
On The Go, it doesn’t take much to engineer some fun! Inspired by classic games like I Spy and Charades, each activity is sure to spark family conversations. You can use them while traveling or waiting in line to learn about the technologies all around us and the types of engineers who design them.
