Blog Launch for STEM Spark and #Giveaway!

Updated: Aug 13, 2018

Hello! Welcome to my new blog, STEM Spark! Thank you for virtually being a part of the launch for STEM Spark! I'm Suzie Olsen, engineer, author/writer, mother (of humans, not dragons), wife, lover of pun jokes, and so on. While I'm not new to the blog-o-sphere (, this blog is a new platform for me to focus on everything in my life that is science, technology, engineering, and math. Hence the STEM part in STEM Spark. I'll be writing about what it's like to be an engineer and my day to day work/upcoming projects, fun STEM experiments and activities, interviews and guest blog spots from cool STEM professionals, reviews of STEM books, toys, and products, and not to mention free downloads and giveaways!

The spark (see what I did there; insert your groan here), aka name, for this blog came from watching my three year old as he explored the world around him with awe and curiosity. To me, STEM is one of the best ways to spark curiosity and awe in children (and in us). So the name STEM Spark was forthright born. My hope is that STEM Spark ignites the spark that lays in all children-- that lays in us all.  At the end of the day, this blog is about having a good time while exploring STEM! Please take a look around and enjoy!  

And now for a giveaway! Which hopefully sparks some excitement for ya and keeps you around despite my puns. I can't promise I'll lay off the puns since I do love them, which reminds me, please always feel free to send me a pun joke at Alright back to the giveaway. What you can win is this Hello Kitty Science Package (pictured below): Hello Kitty Science pins, Hello Kitty Science journal, Hello Kitty Science pencils and a fun periodic table tote bag to carry it all in! It's the same Hello Kitty Science pins that I'm wearing above!

Dets about the giveaway: It's only open to people living in the United States (I promise International peeps, I'll have a future raffle for all residents of the world), and it runs from midnight US Eastern Time on 8/11/18 until midnight US Eastern Time on 8/15/18. To enter, use the Rafflecopter below, following me on Twitter or Facebook. May statistical randomness be in your favor!

STEM, STEM, STEM, STEM, STEM! We shall live and breathe STEM on this blog! Okay, not really, but I think you get the point that this blog is centered around STEM. 😉
