Keep kids busy with #12DaysofSTEM!

Here at CI-WATER, we hypothesize that Winter Break is extra fun when you add STEM to the equation. Here’s our list of fun activities to try with the kids:

Day 1. Engineer alternative décor inspired by this innovative take on the traditional Christmas tree. 

Day 2. While those cookies are baking, see why “bakers are mad scientists” with this animated vid.

Day 3. Get the kids coding seasonal cheer such as animated snowflakes and yetis.

Day 4. Share some quality You Tube time with these STEM-focused favorites: the physics of how dogs drinkRobotina (sorta) dancing the Nutcracker Suite and the all-time winner of cool engineering music vids.

Day 5. Cozy up with smart TV on UEN-TV and Wyoming PBS

Day 6. Share a good science adventure book. (The American Library Association has lists for every age group.)

Day 7. Bust out the chessboards for a family-wide tourney or stop by an online site like this one to solve the problem of the day.

Day 8. Remember science = fun with 10 great experiments for little ones. (Don’t “fizzy candy canes” sound fun?)

Day 9. Party with a podcast like this interview with CI-WATER's own Steve Corbato.

Day 10. Create a science trivia quiz for family near or far to play with this free tool that lets you set up a “Rocket Race.”

Day 11. Build a cool Lego Santa sleigh.

Day 12. Explore the science of warmth as you sit by the fire.
