Experimentation is key to STEAM and to critical thinking. Hands-On STEM allows children the opportunity not just to learn about science and math but to experience it! Each week, the program tackles a hard to understand concept and makes it more understandable with hands-on projects. Topics include “Understanding Weather” with tornadoes in a jar and SPOOOOKY Halloween science!
