20 STEM Experiments and Challenges for Kids

STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) is the movement designed to promote educational activities related to the sciences and math across all grade levels. Since these subjects are considered integral to future competitive economic growth, federal entities have an avid interest in promoting and supporting them. For teachers, this means more exposure for science and math topics, as well as plentiful resources for activities and lessons.  The 20 STEM activities below are great examples of experiments and challenges that can be integrated into weekly lesson plans to encourage students to think outside of the proverbial box.  Give them a try!
