The freedom of summertime helps you get students outside to explore the natural world and your surrounding community, which opens many opportunities for STEM learning right in your own backyard. Since summer usually brings at least a few extremely hot days and a few very stormy days, you may find yourselves unable to go outdoors at times. Don’t worry – Y4Y resources can help spark students’ interest in STEM, indoors or out.

For example, the STEM Everywhere Activities chart provides detailed ideas for bringing STEM into your program in a variety of ways. Although the document is targeted to school-year programs, the ideas translate into summertime with ease. Try out some of the activities for rainy days and match them up with outdoor extensions to truly bring them to life for your students.
