Experiments may seem as an old relic of classrooms once forgotten in the age of social distancing.
When it comes to learning, many of us may think that education merely comes from a classroom; this simply is not true!
The roots of learning come from the hands-on experiences we build from life, especially from home! In this time of isolation, it is important to continue thinking of interactive activities to keep ourselves busy as well as teach and develop ourselves.
That may sound harder than it is, for there are plenty of resources and outlets to take advantage of the benefits of STEM learning right from the comfort of home!
Using toys to promote STEM learning:
Toys are a great way to promote the principles of STEM!
Toys reinforce all the key points of STEM by promoting physical activities through adventure. They also allow kids to learn and cope with failure through trial and error.
Toys encourage critical thinking and discovery through adaptation, collaboration with others, creative invention of new games with toys, as well as a diverse and personal understanding of the world through the process of play.
Modifying DIY experiments:
There are plenty of do-it-yourself experiments on the internet that allow for hands-on interactivity.
While you may not have the time or the materials to do all these experiments, why not tailor them to your needs and incorporate some outside of the box thinking?
Taking activities from the internet and putting your own spin on it can be an exciting way to form ideas about the world and behavior of phenomenon through offering an element of discovery rather than performing an exercise that is preordained.
Exploring a world of discovery with STEM kits:
STEM kits are a perfect balance of learning and discovery; with ready made instructions and materials, they provide a quick and easy way to jump straight into the engaging world of experimenting.
