What is STEM or STEAM? This stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, ART and Mathematics.
Why is STEAM important? By the time your child enters the workforce, 65 % of the jobs that will be available don’t even exist today. You are preparing your children for a world that doesn’t exist yet…for technologies that are not invented.
How do you prepare your child for a world that doesn’t exist yet? Encouraging your child’s natural curiosity and talents through STEAM activities helps your child learn:
how to persevere
how to learn from failure and still try again
how to re-evaluate, redesign and re-think a problem to create a unique and inventive solution.
All of these skills (among many more) are learned through STEAM activities.
Anything is possible with STEAM-filled kids.
