I’m a mom to two girls. I know that math and science have been considered male subjects for ages. I don’t want my girls to be afraid of math and science and to be honest, I never want them to know that those subjects are considered to be “male”.
This past weekend at the Philadelphia Science Festival there were hundreds of science related tables with projects that kids could work at and learn something new. My girls created an Easter Egg Submarine, made liquid goo, got an I Am A Girl pin and lanyard, saw a live bee hive, met Brother Bear Berenstein and listened to live music.
It was great to see all of the different ways that kids can interact with science. How they can learn scientific things while having fun. I was so excited to learn cool projects that I could do with the kids that would make them excited about science and math.
So, now all I have to do is put all of it into motion. That part is going to be easy right?
How are you introducing your kids to science? What activities have you tried?
