It was determined through the literature that exposure to science early in a child's education causes an increase in STEM. Also upon reflection as a group, we all could recall specific engagements as children that made us interested in science. So, we wanted to provide this for current students starting their STEM education. Our goal for this project was to get kids excited about science and learning about it. If we could make science fun they would more likely enjoy learning about it and get involved in science. Our target audience was kids in kindergarten through middle school. To be more specific, one of our activities was targeted at kindergartners specifically and the other activity was focused on kids that were between the grades kindergarten through middle school.
