Free At-Home Activities from EiE Families
Engineering and Computer Science activities for families with kids ages 4-11.
Introducing the NEW! EiE Families. Designed for families with kids ages 4 to 11, our interactive online experience offers free engineering and computer science activities to support STEM learning at-home and on-the-go. Improved accessibility features like interactive read-alouds, animations, a Spanish language version of the site, and more make learning more engaging and fun. EiE Families also offers detailed instructions to support educators in hosting their own community STEM event.
At-Home Activities are designed for families or groups to complete at home using commonly found materials like cardboard boxes, pencils, or empty milk cartons. Each activity starts with a context-setting, story in comic format that poses a real-world problem that needs to be solved. The activity then guides the family through the engineering design process to find a solution.
On-the-Go Activities are inspired by classic games, like I Spy and Charades , and can be completed while riding in a car or bus, standing in line, or sitting at a table. In these activities the groups discuss what technology is and how technology affects our lives.
Families and educators can also work together to organize a STEM Event at school or in a community space. These activities are designed for learners and their families to work on engineering challenges in a group setting. Each download includes everything you need to plan, announce, and host a successful event.
