I truly enjoy sharing my love of science and math with my kids. While I usually create activities for us to do together, I often gain inspiration from other STEM bloggers. Their creativity helps me share science experiments I wouldn’t have otherwise thought of, or different ways to teach my sons the same concept. Many of them have expertise I lack, so I reach out to them to learn how to help my sons with concepts they are not grasping at school. I hope you will head over to each site, and gain inspiration for awesome STEM projects and activities!
