In the Know: Celebrating National STEM Day!

National STEM Day was celebrated on Monday, November 8th, and was aimed to inspire kids to pursue and explore their interests in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. This day is an opportunity to focus on helping young people develop an interest and advance in these fields. We believe the best time to build this mindset and spark interest is during their early education experiences. This week we’re sharing three fun activities that will help explore the field of STEM, read on to find out more.
