Check out this list from the HuffingtonPost for STEM activities, featuring littleBits and Goldieblox.

While parents and teachers alike will be busy with holiday activities throughout the month of December, they should mark their calendars from December 7-13th for Computer Science Education Week. The week, held in recognition of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper, who would have been 109 on December 9th, is an annual program dedicated to inspiring students from kindergarten to grade 12 to take an interest in computer science.

It’s a time for parents and educators to promote and encourage STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) in fun and accessible ways. One way is through Code.org’s Hour of Code, which provides simple games and modules designed to keep kids’ interest and teach basic coding in only 60 minutes.
