Creativity is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. It's characterized by the ability to perceive the world in new ways, to find hidden patterns, to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and to generate solutions. Science lets us experiment with everything from mixing acid and alkaline to curing deadly diseases. STEM is creativity. Science Adventure Kids' mission is to foster this creativity in every child.
