Kids develop STEM habits in the classroom, but they spend most of their time outside of school. That’s where parents and other adults can help to inspire, support, and continue their children’s STEM learning.


STEM is a popular acronym embodying a philosophy of education that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. STEM and STEAM are about teaching these skills and subjects in a way that applies to real life.


Research studies across the board all seem to come to the same conclusion when it comes to family involvement: When families are involved with their children’s learning from the beginning and throughout their academic careers, students don’t just succeed — they shine.
