Do you have a kiddo who just *needs* to know how things work? A kiddo who loves to tinker and take things apart? They would love STEM activities. STEM activities are a way to learn hands-on the emerging concepts from Science, Technology, Engineering and Math fields to create something. STEM activities are both great at helping kids develop critical thinking skills but also are a ton of fun!
Today’s activity was inspired by Sylvan Learning. They have a new after school enrichment programs titled Sylvan Edge that will inspire your kiddo outside of school with STEM projects. Kids can build robots from Legos, learn how to apply software to real-life scenarios, they can explore coding and even create their own video games or animated stories. For full details about how to make the electromagnetic train, check out Sylvan’s blog. We guest posted this STEM activity over there!
