Celebrating National #STEAMday with Project Mc2

Did you know that today (November 8th) marks national STEAM day?

Do you know what national STEAM day is?

STEAM day is meant to inspire children to explore and pursue their interests in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths and due to my work background, this is a cause very close to my heart. We face a huge skills gap in my industry which is so detrimental and one of the biggest challenges we face is attracting more young people, so I fully support these endeavours.

Project Mc2 is an American television series produced by DreamWorks Animation and MGA Entertainment for Netflix and was first launched in 2015. My daughter, aged 10, is a big fan of the programme.  The series is about the adventures of McKeyla and her best friends who work for a highly secretive group of female government operatives who are trying to protect the world.

In order to mark this day, we have become official STEAM day bloggers and were sent a Project Mc2 Spy Bag to review.

The Ultimate Spy bag contains everything you need to go on NOV8 missions – that’s innovate to you and me!The bag contains an array of spy gear disguised as cosmetics – fingerprinting kit disguised as powder make up, a flashlight disguised as nail polish and a lipstick…no wait that’s a secret message launcher! There’s also beakers and test tubes, essential to any crime scene investigation!

My daughter loved unpacking all the bits, setting them all up and then testing out the kit – her favourite thing was the message launcher, she had a LOT of fun with that. My favourite thing was that it all packed away neatly into the little case – the perfect toy in my book – as nothing gets lost, it’s all nicely contained.
 You can see the bag in action on YouTube below:

Thanks to Project Mc2 for the chance to be involved and be an official Blogger for STEAM day. We hope that more little girls are inspired to try out science and technology for themselves!
