STEM for the Summer! This is a fun activity to send home to encourage family learning. Students will earn badges for completing STEM activities over the summer. (Think Girl Scout & Boy Scout badges.) There are a variety of simple-to-implement STEM activities to do at home. I purposely chose activities that required only a few basic materials. Although the activities are simple, they are designed to promote scientific inquiry and critical thinking.
This is the school-wide license option, perfect for sending home for the entire school! If you are interested in a single classroom license, try here:

There are 20 badges to choose from. When students complete an activity, they glue the badge onto the lab coat. Try to earn 10 badges over the summer!
Make and test paper airplanes from a variety of materials, construct a device that will launch water balloons, create a model robot using recycled materials, and more!
