The new buzz word in education is STEM. STEM stands for "Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math". Parents and even most educators are afraid of the word and how to truly implement it. I must admit that I have struggled with the engineering piece of STEM. However, the other night while surfing the internet, I found an article with pictures about making an inventors box for your child, and it came to me; this is what the engineering part of STEM should look like.
Don't get me wrong, it is a great idea, especially if you are not currently allowing your child to do this and an even better idea if you are a classroom teacher. For some parents, this is just a natural part of their children growing up, but for those who it is not; here's an idea for you!
