Science Projects – Experiments – STEM Activities

In an analysis of 6 studies including more than 35,000 kindergarten-ready children, it was found that comprehension of the world was the strongest indicator of the kid’s future academic performance.

Comprehension or general knowledge of the world is a very broad category, but it basically means common sense in daily lives.

It is not surprising that children who have a good handle of common sense will do well in school.

One specific topic that is very important in today’s education is STEM.

It stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

Here are some of the top science projects, science experiments and STEM activities for kids.
