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 Outschool.com and attending a twice-a-week local STEAM program for homeschoolers.
I like to support my children in all of their efforts, especially when it comes to science and engineering. That’s why I picked these 15 Spring STEM Projects for Homeschoolers to help keep little scientists engaged, learning and well-prepared for the 21st century. Not only are these spring science experiments good for homeschoolers, but they’re also great for classrooms, scout troops and after school clubs.
