Summer is here and school is out, but that doesn’t mean learning has to stop. During vacation, many students experience a “summer slide,” and forget some of what they learned during the academic year, effectively slipping backwards. Help your kids keep their skills sharp by integrating STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) learning into their everyday summer routine.

In partnership with top teachers from Voya’s Unsung Heroes program and the 2017 State Teachers of the Year, Voya has collected fun, educational and interesting STEM projects that families can do together. From racing Lifesaver cars to testing out a homemade submarine, these simple experiments are projects that any parent or guardian can use to get their child outside in the summer weather, enjoying the world around them – while learning a little bit about it.

Voya’s commitment to STEM is focused on workforce readiness and encouraging children’s interest in subjects necessary to compete in the 21st century workforce and achieve a more stable lifelong income as a cornerstone of financial resilience.
