What is STEM?
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics are known as STEM. It is extensive and much required because it is present with us in all time. Science exists everywhere in our daily life. Technology is used as a tool and machine for solving many real world problems. Engineering is used to design and build the machines, tools and materials etc. But it is also helping to remove the different environmental issues and change the global weather. Mathematics is much needed in our daily lives. Every time we are effectively dealing our problem with mathematics. We do the large number of activities in science and mathematics. STEM is convenient for everyone. It grooms up the kids. It provides concepts, mental and technical lesson to students. It is interesting and effective for the students to do much more than just learn.
Preschool is story time and play time for the children. The kids whose are under 3-5 years you can explore the knowledge and skills about the science, engineering, technology and mathematics concepts through pictures, cartoons, notification books, video games and related hand on activities. This is very useful or the children mentality and growth. Technology is also utilized in the preschool STEM program, but due to age, it is not as much focus on technology. Parents should participate in these activities with their children throughout the program. Children are naturally unusual about their world so you can give them different toys in this way they learn through play. With close supervision, also offer real objects to study and learn. Often real objects, like an apple or a squash, a shiny water bottle or textured paper, are much more interesting to the littlest learners than plastic toys and materials. Through innovative play, you can start STEM Education for kids at home.
Importance of STEM
In the new era, our world becoming more complex or difficult to us.it is much required that our youth and kids take the modern knowledge and skill to solve many issues, make sense of information and know how to make a favorable and effective decisions. Students should be develop yourself in science, engineering, technology and mathematics disciplines known as STEM. If we want that our future leaders and workers will become radiant or bright full and they have ability to understand and solve the complex challenges so STEM could be effective and fruitful. Therefore STEM field must be essential for our youth as well as kids.
“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”
STEM education is crucial to success. STEM-based education teaches children more than science and mathematics concepts. The focus on hands-on learning with real-world applications helps develop a variety of skill sets, including creativity. We can prepare our children to become the innovators and inventors with STEM education programs. Through Summer camps, after school programs and makerspaces provide opportunities to take traditional learning and pivot it to prioritize the hands-on experience and real-world application necessary for developing an innovative mind in kids. STEM education are now getting more interest than ever, with more programs, classes, camps, and even museums turning their focus to where STEM can lead our world in the future.
Why STEM activities are necessary for our kids
Stem activities are important and rewarding career choice and these activities provide the platform where they flourish their Career fields.
- Kids can get knowledge across different environments, context and see through different learning so it prepare kids for the technological innovation.
- Stem activities increase passion and interest in kids that they do not like especially mathematics and somehow science as well.
- STEM helps kids to recognize the problem and it teaches problem solving skills in our kids.
- STEM skills increased knowledge in kids like computer, technological, communication and teamwork thoughts.
- STEM activities can provide entertainment, fun, interest and motivate our kids.
- STEM activities improve conceptual and technical skills in kids and these are also useful for kids’ mentality.
