Unplug from electronics

But it’s also important for their health to spend time unplugged from electronics. In this all-digital age, kids still need to be able to write with pencil and paper. And it’s a proven fact that the act of drawing helps kids learn better.[see note 1]

The printable worksheets and e-books in the STEM-Inspirations free resource library teach important content about science, technology, engineering, and math. At the same time, they help kids develop hand-eye coordination as well as spatial visualization skills.

Once kids understand how to draw simple 3D sketches using the free 3D Drawing Workbook, they can move on to designing in 3D using online software like TinkerCad, MorphiSketchup, and more.
