  Learning about S.T.E.A.M & Engineering with Gingerbread & Gumdrops
GumdropChallenge
S.T.E.A.M. has become a hot topic in the world of education. It is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics for guiding student inquiry, discussion, creativity and critical thinking skills. 

Today we are going to focus in on the Engineering side of S.T.E.A.M. So what is engineering anyways? Basically, anything that is built must first be engineered, or in other words, planned out. An engineer is a person who designs and builds complex products, machines, systems, or structures. Engineering combines science and mathematics to create structures and devices to solve problems.

    

The engineering process involves 5 steps called the ABDCE: Ask/Problem, Brainstorm, Design, Create, Evaluate/Test. Encourage your junior scientists' and teach them about the engineering process with this fun, seasonal gumdrop challenge.

Germs
From the Archives: 
 
December 2014 Edition: Germs!

It’s that dreaded flu season again! Most of us unfortunately know what the flu feels like, but have you ever wondered what it looks like? When we picture the Flu virus or any germ for that matter, we imagine one of those creatures from the Mucinex commercial on television. Green, slimy and gross! Or maybe you picture some kind of cuddly creature with googly-eyes? No matter what it is you think germs look like, they all look and act completely different!

A Big 'Thank You' to All Our Loyal HTHT Customers!
 
 
snowflakeScience is part of our daily life; everything we do & encounter on a day-to-day basis has underlying science that many of us are unaware of. From cooking to playing ball; growing a garden to watching snow fall - understanding science can help us appreciate & relate to the world around us. No matter the age, the gift of science can fuel curiosity, ignite inspiration, and motivate our lives in so many different ways!

As we enter into this holiday season, we'd like to say thank you to our loyal HTHT customers for allowing us to be a part of their scientific discovery throughout this past year. This December, we challenge you to step into the shoes of a curious chemist, an eager environmentalist, peppy paleontologist or maybe even a mighty meteorologist and begin to discover how the world around us works, one test tube at a time!  


Happy Holidays from our HTHT Family to Yours!
