  • What is STEM and why is it important for our children?

    Posted by:

    STEM is the study of science, technology, engineering and math.  Unfortunately, some students can view these as subjects that are too difficult or irrelevant in their day-to-day lives. Through play, negative connotations of STEM are removed. Students will enter the world of curiosity, problem solving, and creativity.  " Failure" is part of the learning process- not a termination.  This informal approach not only encourages more students to pursue STEM careers, but fosters a population more open to analysis and exploration of the world around us.
