Series: Create-to-Learn Projects: STEAM
Asking questions helps turn curiosity into inquiry! In this activity, children will learn more about different types/ levels of questions by creating an Inquiry Ladder and challenging themselves to think about bigger, essential questions.
Scientists, tech experts, engineers, artists and mathematicians get excited when they think of good ideas and blend them with other ideas. In this activity, children will create a board game and work together to make it better.
Our brains like questions, movement, and visual exercises. In this activity, students will research and illustrate how the brain works when actively engaged in finding and solving fascinating problems.
STEAM Teams include scientists, tech experts, engineers, artists and mathematicians who solve real-world problems, knowing there is always more than one right answer. In this video, children modify everyday objects that could be used in new ways to solve real-life problems. Show Less
Nature solves problems in surprising and inventive ways. In this activity, children will create a biomimicry card game and think about the ways in which nature can be imitated to solve real-world problems.
Visual thinking is an important way of communicating! In this activity, children will design imaginative STEAM solutions to solve real-world problems.
Collaboration helps us see problems from new perspectives. In this activity, children will learn about the Boston Molasses Flood and ask STEAM questions to solve the mystery.
Children form STEAM teams that work on fascinating real-world problems, design solutions, and then pitch their ideas to others. They build skills in articulating points of view, embracing others’ ideas, and finding new ways to collaborate.
Outdoor explorations often have unexpected experiences and problems that need to be figured out. In this video, children take a hike, are surprised by a rainstorm, and use inquiry to discover how STEAM explorers solve problems.
Physical activity activates brains! In this video, children will learn about STEAM by engaging in creative movement and sketching experiences that show energy and how natural and manmade objects move.
