Easy Instructions, Simple Supplies

Perfect for children ages 4-10, the step-by-step activities are helpfully coded with difficulty indicators and estimated project times. Whether you're a STEAM newbie or expert, this challenge is for you!

Plus projects use simple supplies you probably already have at home like toilet paper rolls, pennies, baking soda, and paper.

REAL STEAM LEARNING

Every project includes a What's the STEAM Behind It? section. Kids will learn cool STEAM tricks like:

How to make a penny change color.
How to trick the eye into seeing something that isn't there.
How to build an air powered car.

PLUS, everyone will have fun with daily riddles and fun facts!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT STEAM KIDS

WHY STEAM?

STEAM is the abbreviation for
Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math.
It’s an integrated approach to learning that encourages students to think more broadly about real-world problems.

It's exciting.

There's nothing like science, tech, engineering, art, and math to ignite curious brains! Have you ever heard "that's boring" when lemonade changes color or they see a cookie icing machine?

IT'S NOT JUST STEM?

Art makes STEM better by improving idea inhibition, focusing on the process (where learning happens!), encouraging innovation, and honing mathematical concepts.

IT'S THE FUTURE.

STEM jobs are expected to grow by 16% in the US between 2014 & 2024. And right now, science & engineering careers earn more than double the income of the median job in the United States.

IT'S INNOVATIVE.

STEAM is not just the next big trend. STEAM will help our children's generation save our world by asking questions, thinking creatively, problem solving, and being the change for what ails us.
