Summer STEM Programs, by Bradley Jones

Over the summer I got to do several really fun STEM-y type programs for grade school aged kids. One of my favorites was “Light Painting”—an app-based combination of digital and physical fun which yielded this photo, among many more.

Another was “Rubber Band Race Cars,” which was more low tech but afforded great opportunities for experiential learning. You’ll find the full write-ups here with more photos, videos, and how-to details!
