15 Spring STEM Activities for Homeschoolers

This post may contain an affiliate link.

My daughter loves doing STEM projects (science, technology, engineering and math)!  So much so, that one moment you’ll find her building a science kit in the backyard, while another minute she’s playing with Magnatiles in her bedroom.  She also enjoys taking STEM classes on and attending a twice-a-week local STEAM program for homeschoolers.
