Since STEAM Kids Books launched in 2016,

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT STEAM KIDS
STEAM projects may be all the rage, but it is still a challenge to find easy projects kids will love. STEAM Kids takes all the best STEAM projects and presents them in one easy-to-use format that will delight your kids and won't leave you pulling your hair out.
STEAM Kids is a goldmine of inspiration for parents and educators who are hard-pressed for ideas that straddle the worlds of science, technology, engineering, art, and math. And what fun these projects are!

You've inspired many a query, experiment, creation and a laugh or two in our household and we are so looing forward to a summer filled with STEAM Kids! Thank you for creating the kind of resources that children and adults can get excited by and do together.

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.
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.
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.
