The Maker Mom
Initially developed to hold myself accountable for building my electronic skillz and documenting my romp through the Arduino playground, The Maker Mom quickly morphed into a blog with a mission. The Maker Mom is dedicated to helping parents raise STEM-loving, Maker-friendly kids.– creative, tech-savvy kids.
This blog is a platform for sharing science fun, news and views on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education and thoughts on raising and educating gifted children.
Hi, I’m Kim Moldofsky, a Chicago-area mom of teen boys (who both got full-tuition merit scholarships to college) and Tesla, the wonder pup, blogger since 2005, vlogger, freelance writer, brand ambassador, digital correspondent, and all-around social media mom. I’m a former Science Olympiad and VEX Robotics coach, leading teams to the state competition. And in 2016 I mentored a Technovation Challenge team. I’m also the founder of the popular monthly Twitter discussion, #STEMchat.
