Introducing seasonal science experiments and STEM projects for kids! This is the sister page for our Holiday STEM activities collection. We love holiday-themed science and STEM activities, but we also want to make sure we recognize the changing seasons too! Seasons are also a great time to try out science activities and STEM projects whether they are fun themed ideas or relate directly to the specifics of the season!

Simple seasonal science ideas you can do at home or in the classroom with just a few supplies. Remember if you are looking for more holiday-themed activities, click here.
No need for a degree in rocket science! I don’t like to share complicated, expensive experiments because it doesn’t fit our lifestyle.
My goal is to have you look through our science activities and say to yourself, “hey I can do this!”
I want you to say, “I can even do this right now because I have everything I need.”
Science and STEM don’t have to be expensive and it can be made accessible to everyone interested. Read the article on setting up STEM on a budget to learn more about how you can get started easily and how STEM can be accessible for everyone.
Make sure to look through our SHOP for awesome packs filled with great projects to go with each season!
