9 STEM Projects that Make At-Home Learning Fun
Being stuck at home doesn’t mean that learning stops. In fact, it’s just the opposite. Here are 9 projects that inspire curiosity for kids of all ages.
There are so many ways to foster imagination and build curiosity from the comfort of your own home. Here are some ideas for activities and resources to check out.
Let’s Get Down to the Science
The science lab at school may be closed, but you can still put on goggles and a white lab coat and learn at home. This Test Tube Experiment Kit comes equipped with five activities that will make you feel like a genius in no time. Kids will get the chance to learn about basic chemistry, physics, and more by creating pop-resistant bubbles, bouncy balls, and other objects that will leave them #mindblown.
And the fun doesn’t stop there. This Crystal Growing Kit will transport you right into the lab where you can learn about the process of crystallization and create your own geological formations.
To Infinity and Beyond
Earth is a part of the Milky Way galaxy, but did you know it’s estimated that there are around 100 million galaxies in the universe? There are so many fun and fascinating things to learn about space that the possibilities truly go to infinity and beyond.
A great way to start your child’s educational space adventure is with this Real Life Sticker and Activity Book. Choose from over 400 stickers to create different scenes in outer space and continue the fun with word searches, mazes, coloring, and more!
And now you don’t have to be a NASA engineer to launch your own rocket. What happens when you mix baking soda and vinegar? What are expanding gasses and what is propulsion? Learn about chemical reactions and physics with this Reusable Rocket Launching Kit. Even the astronauts had to start learning about science and space somewhere!
Take a Walk on the Wild Side
Biology class is in session! Here’s your chance to get up close and personal with a great white shark without putting on a wetsuit. This 4D Great White Shark Anatomy Kit allows you to get an inside look at what makes these predators of the deep so powerful.
After learning about their physical attributes, take an even deeper dive into a shark’s world with I Am Shark. Read about what the ocean looks like through their eyes, how they find food, and what it’s like to have that many teeth.
Make the transition from sea to land and continue to explore animal habitats around the world with
this Wild Animal Sticker Book. With over 400 stickers and landscapes that range from the Amazon Rainforest to the African Savanna, there’s a whole world that can be seen without even leaving the couch.
Expedition at Home
Take an expedition to the backyard and get to know your own ecosystem better than ever before. Can you find any wildflowers that are native to your area? What about some unique looking insects? The Kids Digital Camera will allow you to document your findings through photos and videos so your research will never be forgotten.
Looking to learn on a bigger scale? This 2-in-1 Globe Light depicts a fully detailed world globe, like one you would find at school! Complete with natural and political geography lines, this is a great tool for learning about landmasses, countries, cities, and more. It also automatically turns on when it gets dark and shows you what Earth looks like from space at night.
There are plenty of tools and resources out there for kids of all ages that encourage learning and make it fun at the same time. Take advantage of this time at home and find new ways to keep exploring the world around you.
