While winter break is a special time to spend with family, friends, and plenty of food, it doesn’t necessarily mean that your kiddos have to leave learning back at school with their classwork. In fact, this extra time off serves as the perfect opportunity for students to bond with their loved ones over a new, immersive STEM experience.
