The sun is shining bright and school is nearly out. Parents often ask, What are good activities for kids to stay sharp with academics? There are lots of STEM summer camps these days. The most important thing for STEM related education is that kids find it accessible and exciting. Maybe your child like airplanes–check out the offerings at the Museum of Flight. The Pacific Science Center has always had a great selection of camps which they offer at a variety of locations on the eastside and in Seattle. And don’t forget to enjoy the nice weather–why not make a trip to the Colman Pool and enjoy the saltwater pool on the shores of Puget Sound.
