Frequently Asked Questions
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
“In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.” (National Science Foundation)
STEM education helps to bridge the ethnic and gender gaps sometimes found in math and science fields. Initiatives have been established to increase the roles of women and minorities in STEM-related fields. STEM education breaks the traditional gender roles. In order to compete in a global economy, STEM education and careers must be a national priority. Each and every decision made uses an aspect of STEM to understand the implications.
Programs outside of school can help children to see that STEM is more than a class to finish. Having activities that show real-life implication of STEM can pull together the ideas presented in school and help to show how they benefit our society and even our world as a whole. Children can see that what they are learning now is pertinent to their future and the future of the whole world, creating an interest often lacking when learning new concepts that do not seem to carry real-world application. Engineering For Kids, for example, offers a suite of STEM enrichment programs for children ages 4 to 14.
When kids code, they take complex problems and break them down into smaller parts. Kids learn what it’s like to approach a problem the way a software engineer does, with logical, computational thinking. … This logical thinking is a powerful tool in school, work, and life.
In education, the acronym STEM stands for the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM education, then, is the learning of these STEM subjects through an integrated approach; one that offers hands-on and relevant learning experiences.
And we added ‘E’ for English and ‘S’ for Social Studies. 🙂
Why You Should Enroll Your Child in a STEM Program
It’s no secret that after-school activities are good for children. Psychological research has found that after-school activities help produce happier, healthier, more productive adults and help to prevent youth from engaging in risky behavior. In addition to promoting fun, learning, friendship and teamwork, here are four reasons to enroll your child in a STEM program.
STEM teaches innovation
Creativity isn’t limited to the arts. STEM fields require creativity—be it designing a new mobile application, drawing plans for a new bridge, or solving the problems to go to Mars. Through STEM, students that are not traditionally creative (or those who are) can learn to channel their creativity.
Projects boost confidence
STEM projects challenge you to think outside the box, solve problems and explain your results. The ability to clearly and articulately communicate your ideas is a huge confidence booster for youth. Plus, as the saying goes, knowledge is power! And this leads to more confidence in the long run.
