STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) provides the foundation of our entire world. The most in-demand (and highest paying) careers are often in STEM-related fields. Children are often naturally interested in STEM fields, as shown through their interest in hands-on activities such as Lego®s. At Snapology, we know that once a child displays their interest in STEM, it’s important to quickly provide them with sources for growth. Here are some tips on how to support your child’s interest in STEM:
Encourage Curiousity: Ever notice how a child can have a bundle of questions, while older kids can lose their sense of excitement?
Break and Rebuild: When possible, allow your child to take things apart and put them back together – with the right supervision, of course.
Go On a Field Trip: Any science museum, aquarium, or laboratory will do. Or, schedule a 1-8 hour field trip with us at Snapology!
Encourage Exploration: Giving your child a few child-safe science tools (like a simple magnifying glass) will encourage them to be creative on their own!
Are you interested in inspiring children to stay (or become!) involved in STEM fields?
