Battle Boredom With Stem Projects – Kids Will Love Them

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” – American Astronomer Carl Sagan (1934 – 1996).

Firstly, do remember STEM activities are great fun, but all activities should be supervised by a parent or adult.

Check out our top three recommended STEM websites and stave off boredom while staying safe at home.

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

STEM projects enable children to develop skills and knowledge across these four important, stated disciplines. STEM projects typically involve everyday household items and challenge eager participants to build, design, investigate, evaluate, test and redesign.

Here are 3 great websites packed with STEM projects using everyday items.

The James Dyson Foundation – View HERE.

The inventor of the well known Dyson vacuum brand has; through the James Dyson Foundation, created a website that aims to inspire future generations of inventors. One of the best resources available on the website is a set of challenge cards and associated YouTube videos, the former which can be accessed HERE.

Science Buddies – View HERE.

Science Buddies provide lots of hands-on experiments, engineering challenges and demonstrations that take an hour or less and involve everyday items. For more information click HERE.

Little Bins for Little HandsView HERE.

Little Bins for Little Hands has lots of great ideas for STEM projects and it is a must visit for fans of slime and LEGO. Click HERE.
One resource that is of particular merit is its LEGO calendar which outlines a daily LEGO building challenge, such as, build a LEGO catapult. For more daily LEGO challenges visit HERE.


Again, we remind you all activities should be supervised
by a parent or adult.

“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” – Theodore Roosevelt.
