STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) is an important area of focus in the classroom and at home. One of the questions we often receive, is how do I engage my daughter or son in STEM?
Fortunately, several of our Math and Science tutors, have shared their 5 favourite and fun STEM websites for kids:
1) The Science of Winter Olympics: With the Winter Olympics around the corner, the NBC Learn team has teamed up with the National Science Foundation to prepare 16 videos about how Math and Science impact sports. There is an opportunity to learn about gravity, friction, speed and the biology and chemistry of the human body.
2) Science Bob: This website covers everything about science, including research tips, experiments and a Q&A section for everything you were wondering about science.
3) Cool Math Games: Excite your younger kids with this fun and interactive website that covers all things math, including numbers, logic, skill and strategy.
4) National Geographic Kids: This website inspires young adventurers to explore the world through games, apps, maps and videos.
