- a short video that explains the projects and demonstrates how to make them;
- written and printable instructions;
- links to more online resources.
Craft and household skills like cutting, folding, taping, and measuring.
- Students will learn to look for the math implications of everyday shapes.
- Students will be introduced to the idea of using simple materials like paper to create models of abstract designs.
- Students will use engineering design skills like prototyping, testing, trouble-shooting, and iteration as they build, improve, and enhance their models.
What You Need
Kathy’s STEAM workshops require only everyday crafts and household supplies. Detailed lists are available in the description for each class.

Kathy Ceceri, B.A.
Kathy Ceceri is an award-winning writer and educator, and the author of more than a dozen books of hands-on STEAM activities for kids and teens. Formerly the Homeschooling Expert at About.com (now ThoughtCo), she wrote the Hands-On Learning column for Home Education magazine and taught her own two children at home from kindergarten until college.
Kathy’s workshops and activities are designed with the non-expert in mind. They introduce basic concepts in science and technology, and give students the skills and information they need to troubleshoot their projects and build upon what they’ve learned. Additional background material and resources look at the diverse people behind the inventions and put them into context in the larger society.
