Playing tag is an old school game from eons ago! Who knows who invented it, but it's totally fun. The connection to STEM lies in the field of health-science. Every human benefits from at least 30 minutes of exercise daily that gets your blood pumping. In fact, those who do this live longer and happier lives.
If you want to be a good doctor or physical therapist in the field of STEM someday, you have to be able to lead by example. So get out there and get that circulatory system circulating.
