We feel very happy to be involved in the launch of new book “Steam Kids “ by a bunch of my fellow bloggers .
Before I talk more about the book, this summer, my son showed a lot of interest in science experiments. He would say” Mom, let’s try this!” Some experiments turned out really good but I must mention , We’ve failed miserably in few experiments but his curiosity and enthusiasm never failed.
When I heard about STEAM KIDS book, I knew he would love and learn from it as well .
I showed my 8 year old the book and said “you‘re going to be learning all about STEAM”. He was super excited looking at it. The book has many activities, close to 50+ Science / Technology / Engineering / Art / Math Hands-On Projects for Kids. The activities are broken up into the area of inspiration: Build, Color, Play, Sense and Grow. The projects are aimed for kids ages 4-10 with easy instructions and colorful pictures.
Best thing about the book is most of the projects are using regular craft supplies or household supplies.
We tried Rotational Symmetry Art from the book , a wonderful activity to teach kids concepts of Symmetry while rotating irregular shapes.
