Course Detail: STSO - STEM Sampler Online | grades 2-6 with adult supervision

Explore Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) in a virtual laboratory! Use science to learn the difference between chemical and physical changes with sloppy, slimy, and messy experiments. Investigate technology as we learn if the hand is really quicker than the eye with optical illusions. Construct a marble roller coaster to learn how engineering, math and physics work together.
