STEM activities refer to any process that kids can do integrating concepts from science, technology, engineering and mathematics. STEM activities are great for helping kids bring scientific principles to life.
Today’s exploration into physics was inspired by Sylvan Learning. We fold paper to create potential energy and watch as it transforms into a kinetic jump – all with origami.
Kinetic Energy – Physics Experiment
Sylvan Learning has a new after school enrichment programs titled Sylvan EDGE. As part of that program kids do hands-on STEM projects after school. 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. We guest posted this STEM activity over there!
