Outdoor STEM Activities Through The STEM Connection

What has always amazed me about outdoor spaces is they are not discriminatory. Head to your local park at any given moment and you will find all demographics.

Nature has the power to bring us all together. The STEM Connection utilizes this power at Moore Road Farm and other educational sites to inspire all kids in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Their passion shows as they provide many options to learn from their experienced teachers and staff.

Our 5-year-old daughter attended their summer camp two months ago and she is still surprising us with information she learned. It is proof that their hands-on learning approach is truly educating our kids. We wanted this outside-of-the-classroom learning to continue throughout the year so we did some research on what else The STEM Connection offered. We were so thrilled about what we found that we had to share with you!
