Play Dress Up
You may be wondering how on earth there is a STEM connection to playing dress up. Well, let's think about it this way - you are what you wear; dress the part to get the part; dress to impress; see yourself in your role; fake it 'til you make it; look the part, act the part...etc. In other words, don't just send the kids into the closet to try on your clothes. Give them a mission and have them dress for different STEM careers. What would the following career men and women wear: a banker, an aviator, an IT programmer, an civil engineer, a construction manager, a laboratory scientist, an inventor, etc. They'er all a little different and they all inspire confidence in a young mind.
Your closet, grandparent's closet, aunt/uncle's closet, etc.
