Let's trip the light stem-tastic!
by Susan Kimmel
In the words of one of my favorite fictional characters, Ms. Frizzle, of the Magic School Bus fame, “Seat belts, everyone!” This month, we are diving deep into the world of STEM classrooms. Imagine a classroom where equations become friends, robots are your classmates, and experiments are your playdates. That's what STEM-specific classrooms are all about! These magical places are where science, technology, engineering, and math become more thrilling than a rollercoaster ride at an amusement park.
