4-Dimensional Skills for Human Learning: Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Creativity.
Teachable Moments and the Fast Rate of Social Change: The increased demand for STEM knowledge and skills shows the increased need and rapid adoption of new skills, to replace the obsolescence of older outmoded ones.
Flexible Format and Customized Programs and Curricula for Students Aged 4 to 14.
A Mechanical Engineering adventure with the laws of motion—experience the epic battle between inertia and motion!
Around 6:40: The fun of Motion and Machines—exploring the adventures of animal bots in motion! Working out engineering solutions to build animal robots, and programming them to chirp, drum, and sing!
Design challenges where students explore “potential-”and “kinetic energy”—as they design and build the fastest, coolest, and longest roller coasters!
Students learn diverse STEM skills covering computing, engineering, life/social sciences, installation, repair, and more—practical skills applied in various occupations, including S.T.E.A.M. as well as S.T.E.M. subjects and mainstream occupations.
Adding to the necessity and interest in S.T.E.M. subjects and occupations, there’s also newfound interest in S.T.E.A.M. subjects of endeavor as well. The “A” stands for the reassertion of the Arts and Humanities—reintegrating history and philosophy, logic, aesthetics, literature, cinema, sociology, psychology, and so forth into the contemporary curriculum.
Every study and practical application of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics comes with its own history. Great women and men and events throughout history ,who led the way to discoveries, inventions, and ongoing innovations.
STEM knowledge and training—according to current statistical averages—generally pays better entry-level earnings, and provides more opportunities for quick promotions.
Don’t just play. MAKE your own computer games! ComputerProgramming Skills focus on critical thinking, computational thinking, computing practice and programming.
