STEM Stands for:
🧪 As a nation, we have noticed a decline in student interest in STEM-related fields. Students aren’t introduced to these topics or they don’t have time to build competency.
🏗 Children are less likely to be playing with science supplies and experimenting on their own time. Experiments in the backyard with wood, buckets, and cardboard just aren’t as common!
🖥 The idea behind STEM is to blend the learning environment and show students that you don’t learn these topics in isolation.
Starting STEM at an earlier age helps children become aware of the different processes needed to solve problems.
🔬 It increases their interest in all of the subject areas and helps bridge their in-school and out-of-school problem-solving abilities.
🧬 It also begins to show them the possibilities for future careers.
We have some fun, simple STEM ideas you can do at home with your child, remember it’s all about having FUN, you don’t need to be a scientist, an expert in technology, an engineer, or a mathematician.
