Links: creativity & STEM are better together
At Tinybop, we tend to think that STEM and creativity are always linked. But here are some links (ha!) about both for reading, exploring, and playing.
- Is pre-k too early or too late to start teaching math and science concepts (via The Atlantic)?
- LEGO and creative thinking skills (via our blog).
- Creativity is the secret to learning and teaching STEM (via Edutopia).
- The season is over but the Summer of Science archives are full of fascinating stories (via New York Times).
- Part art project, part conservation project, In Pieces, elegantly animates endangered species and shares their plights with facts and videos (via Loves).
- The Smithsonian’s Seriously Amazing site covers art and science and everything in between. You and your kids will find answers to things you had never wondered about before—but will now (via Loves).
- Kids can create electrified art and learn about circuits with Chibitronics. But the real games begin when the building ends and kids are encouraged to tell their own stories about what they’ve made (via Loves).
- Kids can make music and experience its relationship with geometry with Rhythm Necklace (via Loves).
- More fun from Lullatone: type to record songs or make musical animations(via Loves).
