Silly Science and Mystical Math is going online and at-home for the months of October, November and December! The goal of this STEAM Program is to allow parents and children the opportunity to engage in a variety of STEAM activities at home with their children, to help develop your child’s curiosity, creativity and problem solving skills!!
What is 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.
Many times parents feel that STEAM activities may be too difficult, too messy and just too much! It is our hope that by providing you this opportunity to engage in some simple experiments and activities at-home, parents and their children will see that STEAM is part of everything we do with our kids! Some activities may be messy….but that is MOST of the FUN!! All activities will require adult supervision and help……some may be adaptable for younger ages….but typically the activities are geared for preschool-school-age.
For October, November and December we will offer several activities you can do at home. Some of these include experiments and activities such as:
-MAKING A FLINKER
-THE SHRINKING WATER BOTTLE
-MAKING OOBLECK and more!
Once you REGISTER you will receive an email outlining the activities to do! You can choose 1 or choose all of them….. don’t be shy….the GREAT THING ABOUT STEAM….is that you can always learn something, even if the experiment or activity does not come out as expected!!!
