Write a STEM Haiku for Poetry Month

It’s not Friday yet, but it is the first day of Poetry Month, so I’m sharing my post early this week to let you know that we will be inviting readers to share their original STEM haiku with us again this year.

National Poetry Month

Q. How do you write a STEM haiku?

A. Try this.

  1. Select a STEM (science, technology, engineering or math) topic.
  2. Brainstorm a list of words about your topic.
  3. Count the syllables in each word.
  4. Use the words to share a short STEM thought using the haiku format.

Q. What is the haiku format?

A. Haiku has 3 lines.

  1. The first line has 5 syllables.
  2. The second line has 7 syllables.
  3. The third and final line has 5 syllables.
