STEM is such an important part of our education system now, after all, STEM activities are jobs in the future. STEM doesn’t have to be difficult, frightening, or intimidating. It can be fun, exciting, and easy to do.

How strong is spaghetti

This fun spaghetti project helps kids to understand how engineers go about choosing material for building bridges and other structures. It shows how some material works well in one scenario, but does badly in another. Sarah says the experiment is meant for children 13+ but it works well with children younger than that as well as long as parents can read the article with their kids and make it more understandable according to the age group and level.

Make sure you check out some of Sarah’so the great ideas at Frugal Fun 4 Boys. We mean it, you do not want to miss out!

Now it is your family’s turn to find out: how strong is spaghetti? And we would love to hear what your discovered, so please leave us a comment below.
