Keeping your home clean can be an exhausting task, especially if you have to squeeze it in between the chaos and work and keeping your family in line. And if your life feels like it’s nothing but cleaning and tedious chores, perhaps it’s…
The weather is getting hotter and hotter, and if you haven’t done it already, you are probably getting ready to open your pool and start the swimming season. Having a pool in your backyard is wonderful, but it requires quite some effort before you…
No one is denying children aren’t the gift that keep on giving. But, as a parent, there are just some tasks in day to day adult life that shouldn’t be accompanied by kids. Namely the weekly food shop. Opening yourself up to a world of whining, potential tantrums and…
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
Hi I'm Dr. Susan P. Yates. Once upon a time, I was an academic and a scientist. With a PhD in Biochemistry, I spent years in research laboratories making my own mark in the science world. I had great success as a researcher but even with these accomplishments as a researcher, I have always received the greatest joy when I share my knowledge and experiences with others. There is no finer occupation than being an educator. I have had the privilege to act as a professor, teacher and mentor to thousands of students in the Canadian University and College systems for the past 10+ years.
But now I have the greatest job ever. I am a parent to two wonderful girls. These days I am rarely called Dr. Yates. I am usually called Ms. Yates, Susan or just simply Mom.
And with this new role, I have the special honour of sharing both my love and passion for science, learning, and education with my own children EVERY single day. I am reminded how wonderful it is to see things through the eyes of a child. Getting back to the roots of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) has been so refreshing. And this collaboration with my children has even taught me a few new things.
By creating STEM Play Every Day, my mission is to share our experiments and our experiences in the most honest way possible. I will always be practical and realistic about how things really went down. I promise to share the good, the bad and the ugly (and the hilarious!) because STEM can be all of those things. But the bottom line is it must be FUN! And trust me we’re having a BLAST!
What is your blogging philosophy?
I hope to give parents (and teachers) the tools to enrich the lives of our children with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) each and every single day. My educational website includes activities and ideas for simple, hands-on experiments, innovative projects and suggestions on how you can explore the STEM world around us. Everything I share is something I've done with (and for) my kids.
I have been blogging since...
I'm new to sharing our stories. But not new to the activities behind them.
