Episode 15

Topic 1 Are middle children more successful than their siblings?


  • Tweet of The Week from Award Winning STEM Activities. STEM Education teaches kids how to think, not what to think. Using what they already think is cool to inspire them, and then the learning will take care of itself.

Tweet I liked was ‘Turn STEM into STEAM – with Unique Art Activities STEM + Art = STEAM

Education is like a diet – it needs to be balanced !










Question “Dear Sue, I’m worried about letting my kids ride their bikes outside, I worry about how to teach them about stranger danger, I worry about around this whole area of freedom to explore. My husband says I’m raising ‘cotton wool’ kids and I need to let go a bit more. What’s your advice?” – Aparna Patel from Birmingham
