My boys love science and nature. I love the outdoors so while it may be easy for me to get them excited about nature, I’m at a loss when it comes to science and math.
That’s why I’m so happy about Tuesday night’s Twitter chat hosted by The Maker Mom, aka Kim Moldofsky. She is starting a monthly #STEMchat and this Tuesday’s is about “How to Raise Kids Who Love Science.”
I’ll be on the chat’s panel along with Liz Heinecke of The Kitchen Pantry Scientist and Joanne Manaster of Joanne Loves Science. I’m already intimidated. Liz is a microbiologist and Kid Science App developer. Joanne is part of the Scientific American Blog Network.
I hope that what I lack in scientific knowledge I can make up for with enthusiasm for STEM education.
The chat will happen on Twitter with the hashtag #STEMchat this Tuesday evening, August 21, from 8-9 PM Central (6 Pacific, 9 Eastern). What’s a Twitter Party? Click here to find out.
