Good ideas, here's one more

These are great ideas, Jenn, and I am here to offer one more (even though I'm a non engineer--but I still can think like one!). A slideshow I wrote inspired this one: Take kids places where their curiosity for how things work and are developed will be piqued.

I'm thinking of the slideshow I wrote about great places to take kids to interest them in STEM. This is something that is fun, as well, and can involve the whole family. It's also something people can do in the course of their daily lives. Perhaps a family already was planning a trip to the Grand Canyon, or to a local museum. Find a way to use it as a teaching opportunity while keeping it light and enjoyable.
