Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education aims to combine rigorous academic studies with technical skills. The main idea is to make education more accessible and help students in reaching the practical aspects of science. Early exposure to STEM aids students in attaining and developing skills like critical thinking, creativity, good problem-solving skills and engineering design process. Here are five reasons why early STEM Education can add wings to your child’s career:

#1 STEM is ‘Focus on Fun’ approach based

The Focus on Fun approach is the best way to teach students the basics of creating new things. The ideas help students in gaining a new experience of science and realize how fun it is to perform, discuss and improve with science. As young students are most curious to know how things work and play, teaching them through STEM activities, experiments and presentations can unlock infinite possibilities for them. STEM lessons require experimentation, exploring, building and collecting things to design and discover new things.

#2 STEM is tailored level wise

Teaching STEM doesn’t mean teaching higher grade material to primary level kids. In fact, teaching STEM Education involves preparing students to learn the basics and experiment with science and mathematics gradually. The STEM content is very engaging and interesting to students; to maintain focus and keep them calm while learning new skills. Adding further, a balance is maintained between current student understanding level and challenging aspect of STEM Activity.

#3 STEM is relevant

STEM Activities are designed to help students to deal with real-world problems. By making the STEM content and curriculum relevant to kid’s interests makes their learning experience more amazing. This also assists kids in engaging in STEM activities and being motivated throughout the course. Scientifically, we learn and engage more in the things which we observe daily around us and quite relevant.

#4 STEM is Hands on Experience

Instead of limiting students to learn concepts and study for grades in the exam, STEM learning puts hands on experience of learning. The main idea behind hands on learning is the fishing concept i.e. instead of daily feeding a fish to a person; one should teach him how to fish. When students work on STEM designs and models, they look forward to being more confident and curious for the upcoming challenges. Hands-on experiences make STEM more fun and engaging. This also felicitates the overall development of a student.

#5 STEM is skill-based

As the future belongs to STEM-skilled professionals, we need our students to be well-acquainted with STEM concepts. Kids measure, collaborate, measure, discuss and create all together while working on a STEM project. This algorithm teaches students to use their skills as a toolkit and direct a creative solution to the problem.

We at STEMCHAMP, Ghana focus on providing an integrated STEM curriculum to help school going students in becoming technically proficient and develop a good edge over others. STEMCHAMP delivers interesting and relevant content for students to practice, learn and grow with STEM Projects. The motive is to connect the inner curiosity and mindset, in an engaging environment to help students in achieving their goals and realize their dreams. We organize Summer Camps, Afterschool Programs, and Workshops every year to assist students to learn new things in an engaging environment.
