STEM Science Kit

Have you heard of Green Kid Crafts?  They are having an awesome back to school sale that you don’t want to miss out on.

If you are looking to spice up your science curriculum, they have STEM Science Kits allowing children to learn through hands-on approaches, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) experiments.

The science kit is designed to help kids with thinking, questioning, inquiring, etc.  It sounds fantastic! I am definitely interested in this kit for my homeschool, it looks like fun.
