Science Sunday today is inspired by one of our favorite programs here at the Science Center, STEM In a Box. STEM in a Box is an at-home kit of science activities for kids ages 6-12. Each box comes with all the materials you will need for three weeks of engaging science, plus live interactive online sessions with our STEM Educators.
The activity we are working on today is one of the most popular from a previous STEM in a Box kit, a DoodleBot. Learn how to make your own DoodleBot at home this Thanksgiving weekend, how to register for our upcoming winter STEM in a Box kits, and so much more in the full Science Sunday segment below.
All winter STEM in a Box kits are now available, visit CTScienceCenter.org to register for your box.
