The “STEM Swag Box” was created by Temple in 2019 to make STEM-education fun. The STEM Swag Box, exploding with hands-on experiments, has been called “the coolest science kit ever!”. The kits, along with other items from her STEM Girl Swag collection, are sold online and have been purchased by STEM enthusiasts from around the world.
