Questacon: Hands On STEM Activities

While Questacon, Australia's interactive National Science and Technology Centre, is currently closed to the public due to COVID-19, readers from around the world can delight in their extensive online STEM Activities collection. The activities were curated with a variety of audiences in mind, from those seeking "simple science activities using inexpensive materials," to those in search of "projects that are more technologically challenging." The resources and websites included in their catalog have a little bit of everything: citizen science projects, computer science and coding exercises, and conceptual mathematics activities that involve dancing. Scrolling to the bottom of the page, readers can download the full list of activities in PDF or Word Document form. In addition to compiling STEM websites and activities, the collection also highlights MOOCS (Massive Online Open Courses), no-cost (or low-cost, as some courses suggest purchasing additional materials) courses that may be perfect for educators or parents looking for enriching web-based educational opportunities. Current courses include: "Tinkering Fundamentals: Circuits" and "Machine Learning."
