Incorporating Engineering Into Seasonal Traditions
Continuing to capture the interests of young people in STEM activities is of vital importance, especially for those from diverse backgrounds. Whether providing resources for students to take home and engage with their families, making connections with cultural holidays, or just funs ways to see science and
engineering in everyday life, take advantage of these resources!
A great way to celebrate the season is to incorporate engineering design principles into the pumpkin carving process. Check out an array of fun project online, including these ones at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab: https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/edu/learn/project/create-a-halloween-pumpkin-like-a-nasa-engineer/
