Have you ever thought why most people are afraid of Science and Mathematics? It is because they are taught the right way. Students are of two types. One who belong to the learning part and the other who go to the application part. Unfortunately, the Indian education system emphasizes more on the learning part rather than making kids engage in fruitful skill teaching activities. So what does science actually mean? For young learners, science is a just elongation of the everyday world. We don’t have to teach kids to think and discover about everything because they do it naturally. Nothing in this world is better than unlocking the secrets of nature and they can be unlocked with the help of science. Science has always been fun if it’s represented in the right way. When kids explore science on their own under the guidance of a science teacher, they end up learning all the basic concepts from childhood itself.
STEM and Experience
When people say they don’t like science, its most probably they had a bad experience with science. It was the experience which implanted a belief that science is tough and not applicable. Individuals are light manifestations of their beliefs. What they believe in they implement accordingly on the perception of their beliefs. If kids are taught science in a fun manner by asking questions, assessing them practically, exploring together and using creative problem solving, then they will definitely have good experience in science and would encourage them to learn about science. On the other side, amazing learning experiences do become unforgettable experiences and inspires kids to explore science on their own. It’s impossible to erase bad experience one may have with science but it can replace by good experiences in the long run. STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) helps kids to learn science through an interactive, engaging and exploring curriculum.
STEM and Educators
When it comes to teaching science early, teachers have enormous impact over shaping the thoughts and opinions of children. According to scientists, kids form an opinion about science (positive or negative) at the age of 7 only. So teaching the STEM lessons at the early age can prove to be a great asset for them in the future. Teaching science is not just an option it’s a necessity today to make children realize why science is a great fun and helps us to solve numbers of global issues technically. STEM Educator has the responsibility to create amazing experiences that will have a lasting impact on our students throughout their school life. The role of STEM Educator is to incarnate the potential of a kid in science and take his/her skills to a next level. Good teachers teach how to do it and great teachers teach why. The idea behind STEM education is not to make kids learn about facts and histories but to influence kids to learn change and grow.
STEM is the future of education and fosters the growth of great scientists, artists, engineers, designers and teachers. The youth is the future of our nation and the coming generation will represent the skills they learned, developed and inherited through us. So it becomes our responsibility to understand the need of STEM education and think how we can optimize STEM skills for our children.
We at STEMCHAMP believe every child has the potential to become the greatest in his/her field. That’s why we prepare kids for the future through early STEM lessons and give them enjoyable and learning SCIENCE experiences.
