A rat finds a colourful sock on a grey day, crawls into it and imagines eating and dancing with the neighbours and flying away with balloons to pursue his dreams. He is still just a rat in the rain, but he is happy.
You could collect everyday items to inspire creative STEM experiences with the children. How could they use these items to pursue their dreams? What can you discover in the most unexpected places and what makes you happy? How do you share your happiness with others?
With our book recommendations, we want to spark an interest in children to discover STEM in their everyday lives. Most books go beyond the obvious STEM connections and can be a great starting point for exploring children’s questions and ideas further.
