The NDSU College of Engineering has announced a new way for parents to get their kids excited about science, technology, engineering and mathematics, commonly known as STEM. The STEM Kids Take Home program uses fun, hands-on learning activities to stimulate children’s minds and pique their interest in topics not usually covered in their regular school classes.
Based on the popular STEM Kids Camp program, STEM Kids Take Home features nine kits covering areas like electrical engineering, anatomy, physics, coding and crime scene science. The kits cost $25 each and come with all required materials and online resources created by past STEM Kids instructors.
“We are disappointed that we won't be able to have STEM Kids as normal this year (due to the coronavirus), but excited to be able to offer this new option,” said Lauren Singelmann, outreach coordinator for the NDSU College of Engineering.
You can find more information on the kits and links to order them on the STEM Kids Take Home website. Orders will be accepted through Friday, June 12.
Families in the Fargo-Moorhead area will be able to pick up their kits at the College of Engineering the week of July 10. Kits will be shipped free to those living outside the F-M area.
As a student-focused, land-grant, research university, we serve our citizens.
