Over the radio each December, Andy Williams can be heard crooning

"it's the mosttt wonderful timee of the year..."

and with the cheery, albeit chilly, atmosphere of the holiday season in full swing, most of us tend to agree. The winter months are a special time to reflect, cuddle up with loved ones, enjoy hot coco, and watch a Hallmark movie or two. This holiday season, don't miss out on the perfect opportunity to add something extra to the list: engage your students and kids with STEM-related holiday activities for a fun, educational experience before the New Year.
