A STEM calendar with science, engineering, and math challenges! Activities are straightforward and accessible to students of all levels with little or no supplies needed. Get them up, outside, and exploring the world! Students will build a bird feeder, make a lava lamp, cook with fractions, and so much more! The world outside is their new and exciting classroom. 

The daily activities will incorporate math concepts, scientific thinking, critical thinking, communication, creativity, and real-world problem solving. Recommended for upper elementary and middle school grades, and students can easily apply skills applicable to their level.

**Calendar includes June, July, and August 2017**

  • Math Monday: Students apply math concepts to real world scenarios. Examples: Budget for a shopping trip, measure your heart beat, cooking using fractions
  • Outdoor Tuesday: Students get outside and explore nature! Examples: Build a bird feeder, plant a flower, go bird watching.
  • Science Wednesday: Students explore scientific concepts with hands-on experiments and observations with common items. Examples: Make a lava lamp, design a baking soda/vinegar experiment, discover tongue theory.
  • Engineering Thursday: Students will explore engineering through design and building activities using household items. Examples: Design a catapult, build a water balloon helmet, invent a new alarm system
  • Fun Friday: Students get a mix of science, engineering, and math activities with the goal to have some fun. Examples: Create an obstacle course, make symmetry art, design a senses challenge.
