Apple STEM Activities Perfect for Early Learners

What I love the most about STEM is not the actual subjects (I’m not super great at math, actually), but rather the emphasis on independent and critical thinking that it helps children develop.

Even though the STEM subjects seem rigid, they actually promote a lot of creativity and innovation.

For younger kiddos, STEM learning is all about hands-on discovery, exploration, and learning the scientific method.

During apple season, you can tailor STEM activities for kids around apples and encourage a lot of exploration and discovery with these fun apple STEM activities.
