Go on a Neighborhood Scavenger Hunt
Being present, aware of your surroundings, and in a mode of observation is a personal state that will serve everyone well who is headed into a STEM career. The more present and aware you are, the more you'll absorb, process, and learn from. It's a great gift to live in the moment...and it pays off very well in any STEM field.
