PHOENIX — Studies show the best way to get students interested in the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and math) is not through books and lectures, but through hands-on projects that involve interactive problem-solving. Challenges like building full-size cardboard boats and racing them across a public swimming pool, launching weather balloons into inner space and tracking its trajectory, and racing mini-solar cars to test hypotheses on how far they will go in full sun versus shade – these are the kinds of science activities that inspire young minds. As any science teacher will tell you – good science isn’t cheap.
