Summary

Children have many questions about organisms they cannot readily see. The scale and size of microorganisms is intriguing; their role in nature and human health is sometimes confusing. These activities allow you and your child to explore the world of the unseen! Topics include: exploring the tiny particles that float in air, microbes and their many roles, learn about energy and physics with a paper pinwheel, learn about food and health for people and animals, build structures using engineering principles, and create a working model of the lung.

In these unprecedented times of school closures and Stay-at-Home notices, Baylor College of Medicine is offering a set of hands-on K-12 activities, grouped by grade level, that will enable parents and children to remain engaged in STEM learning until school operations return to normal. We call this collection STEM@Home. The lessons were selected specifically because they are easy to use at home, and provide high-quality STEM content without the need for specialized training, equipment or materials. We welcome you to investigate our STEM@Home activities, and to explore the entire BioEd Online website for accurate, free STEM educational materials.
