May the Fourth

It’s May 4th! May the Fourth be with you!

Confused about what that means? May the Fourth is a tribute to the phrase “may the force be with you” from the Star Wars franchise and a way to commemorate the unofficial “Star Wars Day” holiday (as declared by fans worldwide).

We love this phrase at iSprowt because thinking about Star Wars makes us think about science, technology, and exploring, and the creativity that brings it all together. Now is the time to plant the little seeds that could develop into a deep love for STEM. Elementary school students are at the age where science and imagination combine to create magic.

May the Fourth

One way to plant that little seed is by sharing the movies and books that excited you when you were children. Movies and books about space inspire us to explore the world around us and beyond.

Another way to plant that seed is by providing children with the opportunity to engage in hands-on science activities. Learning by doing creates a lasting impact and just may inspire them to start dreaming about what they “want to be when they grow up”.

If your kids are celebrating May the Fourth staring straight ahead while watching every episode of The Mandalorian or going back to the classics and watching Episodes 4-6, take a little break before going to bed to look up instead. Look at the stars and imagine the possibility of exploring the world beyond our own.

Your families can look forward to exploring space in iSprowt Kit #7!
