15 STEM Activity Books for Your Middle Grade Brainiac

by Devon A. Corneal


We all love books here, but every now and then we want something to do. Hands-on projects. Challenging experiments. Messy, brain-twisting puzzles. If your child is interested in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics in any of their many forms, we’ve put together a list of books that will help you channel their curiosity and fill a few hours on a snowy/rainy/stay-inside-but-have-to-make-the-time-pass kind of day. Don’t be surprised if you get caught up in the fun, too!
