Teaching STEM topics to homeschooled kids can sometimes be difficult. Often times, the “freebie” worksheets and experiments you find online are either too simple for older or more inquisitive kids or they lack detailed explanations about how to perform the experiments. In addition, many science curriculum lack the rigor we desire for our kids. Our family is probably unusual in that regard.
When I was contacted by Studica to review the fischertechnik Introduction to STEM I & I kits they offer I was excited. After I actually used them with my kids my excitement was justified. These two kits exceeded my expectations in their quality, level of detail, and their supplemental as well as supporting material.
