Team STEAM Activities
Below you will find activities that will inspire your inner scientist! Every week, we share three activities that fall into three categories: Marvelous, Wacky, and Fun! Each of our activities is geared towards students in grades k-2 with extra material for students in grades 3-5!
Have you ever wondered how art and science go hand in hand? This Marvel Monday, we will explore acids, bases, and chemical reactions not only as a scientist, but as an artist too! Join us as we learn how to create a fantastically fizzy art piece with baking soda and vinegar! Grab your art supplies AND your lab coats, because we're cooking up something marvelously creative at Team Steam!
