Winter STEM Workshop
Winter and the holiday season are perfect inspiration for fun STEM activities involving snow, ice, penguins, and ski jumps! Out winter themed STEM Workshop will keep your littles busy and engaged! Get the kids away from the screens and encourage them to invent, design, and engineer their own winter sports events.
Participants will use design, build, and test a ski jump, magnetic ice skating rink, parachuting gingerbread persons, and more in this hour long winter workshop. We will use various supplies including tin foil, popsicle sticks, pipe cleaners, marshmallows, magnets, etc.
We know that exposing our kids to STEM is important, but why? Among other reasons, activities based in STEM (or Science, Math, Technology, and Math) provide a way for kids to apply the things they learn in school. It helps them understand why it’s important to learn how to read, count, and measure. It gives them incentive to study and provides them a greater level of understanding of the math and science concepts they learn in school
Here are a few reasons why there is such an emphasis on STEM learning:
- Helps properly prepare kids for the digital age
- Encourages critical thinking and problem solving
- Promotes innovation and future entrepreneurism
- Reinforces the idea of learning as exciting and worthwhile
- Encourages teamwork, adaptation, and resilience (accepting that failure is part of learning)
Open to ages 5-12 years old.
