STEM Kits for Kids


What’s all the buzz with STEM? STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific subjects. Students are taught science, technology, engineering and mathematics and how they work together in the real world.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the bulk of STEM careers will be in computers, engineering, and sciences hence proving the importance of STEM in schools. With the technology world continuously growing, STEM gives students the opportunity to develop a passion with what might be their future career. Making math and science fun with STEM show kids how they might pursue a future job in one of these fields.

STEM is not only the teacher’s responsibility. Parents and after-school programs must contribute in encouraging kids to learn STEM and pursue an interest in STEM activities. Knowing the importance of STEM, BEST has created our STEM Backpacks for Kids program.

STEM Backpacks for Kids

The program begins with a fun ice breaker, followed by a series of activities and challenges. Teams will earn visits to the “store” to collect items for inclusion in the student backpacks. Some of the items include Super Science Magnet Kit, Math Flash Cards, Discovery Kits and more. Kids from ages 5-10 years old, will learn the importance of these subjects for their future success.

In recent years, there has been popular in including “Arts” making the acronym STEAM. Art is incorporated to encourage creative thinking. Students gain an understanding of problem-solving, presentation skills and more.

Science, technology, math, and engineering is everywhere around us. When kids experience STEM programs, they hopefully spark a passion for their future career. Children can see that what they are learning now is pertinent to their future and the future and create an interest in learning new concepts that they will be able to use in the “real world”.

      What is a Keynote Speaker?

      Keynote Speaker is an often-misunderstood term associated with simply a motivational speaker, breakout speaker, industry expert, etc. Most professional speakers are not actual trained Keynote Speakers, who are specialists, therefore in much lower supply, and in higher demand.

      Keynote Speakers are experienced, professional communicators who engage an audience, capturing the essence of a client’s meeting. They are able to highlight it to their audience while simultaneously delivering their own key concepts and proprietary content in an entertaining and impactful way. Most companies understand that this specialization is very much worth the time (around an hour) and the investment.

      In order to capture the perfect essence, a Keynote Speaker spends the necessary time researching a client’s industry, their issues, and their audience to craft a customized presentation into a unique and distinctive moment specifically for the client’s event.

      As a top Keynote Speaker, Tom Leu strategically uses compelling storytelling, humor, powerful visuals, audio and video clips, and audience participation elements to weave an impactful message into your event in a fun and memorable way. Tom can also pair his Keynote with Best Corporate Events programming, laying a foundation and setting a tone that best prepares participants for maximum engagement in the forthcoming team events that day.
