LESSON 3: WELCOME TO STEM LAB
ACTIVITY 1: INVESTIGATORS
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. In STEM lab you will learn to become investigators and problem solvers. Investigators are people who look at things very carefully so that they can learn the facts. Let's watch this video to learn more about STEM.
ACTIVITY 2: SCIENTISTS
In STEM Lab, you will be scientists. Scientists learn all about science by doing experiments. Experiments are when scientists do tests to figure something out. Let's watch the video to learn more about experiments.
