About SaM

Brenda grew up thinking she hated science.

But when her 4-year- old daughter was more interested in reading science facts than fairy tales, Brenda realized she had to learn more about science to keep up with her daughter.

Through simple at-home science experiments, Brenda developed a passion for science and now acts as an advocate for STEAM education for kids.


STEAM activities include elements of science, technology, engineering, art, and math.  We believe that creative STEAM activities foster a love of learning in kids. You don’t have to be a scientist to enjoy STEAM activities with your kids!
