Various flowers in test tubes filled with colored water - How to Include STEM in Your Homeschooling Every Day

Looking for practical ways to teach your kids STEM topics? Today I share some suggestions for teaching your kids about STEM topics through everyday things like visiting the gas pump or watching sports.

Briefly, the three examples I give in this podcast are:

  1. At the gas pump – How is fuel made?
  2. Watching sports – How does a pitcher throw a curveball?
  3. In your house – Calculate the volume of various objects.

Listen to the episode to hear more.

This is a presentation that I’m working as part of the workshops I offer to homeschool groups and conferences. Get in touch if you’d like to schedule a workshop in the spring or summer.
