STEM Inspired: Summer Learning for Kids, Tweens and Teens

 
It’s week three of summer school vacation for us.  Are the kiddos bored with worksheet activities?  Or perhaps they are getting really close?  We are not quite there but the excitement to learn during the day is to say the least unenthusiastic.  I figured this week we can break up the monotony a little.  I plan to bring on a bit of a challenge, particularly for the older kiddos.  I aim to inspire future engineers, architects and math minds in general.  At the very least they won’t forget how to do math...or science.

 

Happy Learning!!

 

 

High and Middle School:

 

Select a place in the world to build and research the architectural designs. Or locate different historical monuments or buildings around the world and recreate them using Build with Chrome.
