STEM Activity Library

How to use the STEM Activity Library

The projects carried out in previous IMAGINE Family STEM Nights were enjoyed by all the families and the students. We wanted to share the activities and resources needed so that teachers and parents at home can implement them with their students and make STEM exciting!

There are different challenges under each engineering major. There is also some general material under each engineering major. Teachers and parents can go through the general material first, and then dive into whichever challenges they would like. Each specific engineering major page has some introductory material that helps them understand the major and gets children excited to learn about it. Each challenge will provide a list of materials and instructions, as well as some prompts and questions to think about while going about the challenge. There will also be a video demonstration of how to proceed with the challenge.
