We are big believers in the importance of using a play-based approach to introduce kids to science and engineering. STEAM (the acronym stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math), is a wonderful way to teach children about these fields through creative methods and hands-on projects. Here are some of our favorites.
