Science Tots nonprofit gets kids messy with math
by david singer, observer-reporter

We did the ‘Messy Math’ lesson, and we’re going to do ‘Squishy Circuits’ next. The trials they figure out on their own – you can help a little bit, but it’s so amazing to watch your kid figure out these experiments without a parent or teacher. It’s a great way for them to learn the basics of science, like the interaction of solids and liquids.

Kids are given freedom to experiment and problem-solve on their own, and all the activities use affordable supplies that you can get at the local store.

8 Fun Activities To Celebrate "Pi Day" and Math
By Rachel Sokol

Erica Pearson, founder of Pittsburgh-based ScienceTots, shares the math activity she recently facilitated with children in grades first to sixth. ‘Using shoe box lids, we created ‘marble mazes.’ Children were asked to trace the shoe box lid on a large piece of white paper and then using markers, they were asked to plan where they would put their obstacles—materials found around the house like cut-up straws, cut up sponges, toilet paper tubes, styrofoam, and so forth.’

By Kidsburgh Staff

Building a simple car from cardboard and wooden thread spools might look rough and clunky, but it offers some opportunities for learning and developing skills, says Erica Peterson, founder of Science Tots. It’s S.T.E.A.M. education — science, technology, engineering, art, and math — in a small package.
