So first off, I am thrilled to pieces to be guest posting at Nurture Store today. I’ve got a cutey-cute little project on sticker resist t-shirts over there, and we had an absolute blast making these. They’re a good beginning-of-summer art project.
Secondly, I read about this really cool Kickstarter project that I thought I’d share…
It’s called STEAM Carnival by Two Bit Circus, 2 guys with backgrounds in engineering and entertaining, who have managed to take the idea of the traditional carnival and supercharge it with lasers, robots, and electricity.
This is where art meets science and sucks kids in completely. Watch their Kickstarter video for a better idea of what they’re about:
Isn’t this exciting? This is exactly the kind of thing that gets kids excited about learning- I’ll bet one day at the STEAM Carnival would equal a year’s worth of education. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating, but this is the sort of experience kids internalize and the excitement and curiosity permeates their little brains in ways classroom learning just can’t.
