School has ended, but that doesn’t mean kids’ learning should! Summer vacation provides an opportunity for kids to further explore topics of interest, such as those in STEM fields.

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Educating future generations in these fields is not only important for our country as a whole, but also for children to develop critical skills and rise up to the challenges facing us in the 21st century. Through STEM education, we can empower the next generations of thinkers and problem solvers.

There are plenty of online resources to foster learning about the STEM fields. For those looking for more hands-on experiences, STEM camps are an option and widely available! Check out our roundup of STEM camps in the U.S. to enroll in this summer.
