"I am a teacher of K-5. I teach in a computer lab, but have turned the class into more of a STEM setting, especially with the older students.I am always looking for new ideas to change up the activities. I love the activities I find on STEAMsational!"

"I am a Pre-K teacher currently working the math and science part. My kids are always ready for science. I do a lot of STEM activities with elementary kids during the summer. It's so much fun to see kids of all ages fall in love with STEM using you activity ideas!"
I hated science as a kid. Science was *the most* boring thing. All we did was read about science. We never *did* science.
Fast forward 15 or so years, and suddenly, I'm homeschooling my daughter who has ADHD. She was not interested in words. She wanted reality, and what she wanted most of all was science that she could do herself.
This was back in 2010, and STEM was just starting to be a buzzword in the teaching community. I loved the idea of mixing several types of learning into one lesson.
There weren't many STEM resources available at that time, so I made lessons for my daughter and her Girl Scout troop. When the other parents and teachers started asking for my lesson plans, I put them online.
With that, STEAMsational was born, and soon thousands of teachers, families, and caregivers had STEAMsational products in their classrooms, programs, and homes across the globe!
Today, the STEAMsational mission is to provide simple, accessible, and affordable STEM lessons for teachers and caregivers around the world.
