Summer STEM Activities
School may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean learning has to! In fact, it is vital that it doesn’t. Over the summer, students can lose the equivalent of two months of their grade-level math and reading skills. To combat summer learning loss and keep those STEM skills fresh over the summer, Project Lead The Way (PLTW) put together a list of 20 Super Cool, simple (and FUN!) STEM activities you can do with your children over summer break.
