What is STEM?
In a rapidly changing world, key skills and characteristics developed through STEM will be critical for everyone. Should you not want to work in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math, STEM learning will undoubtedly benefit you.
As technology evolves with the speed of light, it is increasingly critical that everyone has opportunities to develop their critical thinking, problem solving, creative and collaborative skills.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, although there is more to the study of “STEM” than the above mentioned.
Science: This entails physics, biology and chemistry. Technology: This is where scientific knowledge is applied for practical purposes, creating new machinery and new processes that transform society.
Engineering: This is where science and math are used to solve practical problems.
Mathematics: This includes pure and applied math, and all the various subfields of mathematical analysis.
STEM is so much more than four fields of study, though. It includes a diverse set of skills and characteristics — ways of thinking about (and solving) the problems that we face. We can break down STEM-related skills into three categories: fundamental skills, practical skills, and advanced skills.
Fundamental skills represent skills that are of value to anyone, in any occupation and in everyday life! They include logical reasoning, critical thinking, and problem-solving. These are the skills we use every day when we evaluate a problem, identify resources, construct a solution, and execute plans.
Practical skills are what we usually associate with “STEM.” These skills are usually related to particular jobs – such as using specialized equipment, doing calculations, and developing technology. When we imagine specialized careers or highly skilled trades, we generally think about practical skills.

HOW WE TEACH
HOW WE LEARN
WHERE EDUCATION LEADS
EQUITY AND HOW INCLUSIVE IT IS
Improve student participation in STEM courses by gender, culture, socioeconomic background and region.STEM education evolves to address the specific needs of Indigenous students and to incorporate other world views.
There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.
ROBOTICS & CODING
Young engineers will build & keep their own robot, learn all about the use of its sensors, LEDS, circuits, explore bluetooth capabilities and further customization of their Robots. Our lessons are designed to teach kids computational thinking and a deeper understanding of the use of more complex coding commands thru creative projects. This fun combination of hardware and software allows kids to transfer their engineering knowledge & programming skills to be creators and inventors!.
Students will have to assemble and program their robots to develop their own innovative solution problems. Programming for kids and coding for robots is both educational and fun.
TECHNOLOGY & CODING
Technology shapes our future. Teaching coding to kids gives them the tools to build that future. Our Coding classes teaches your child to code by helping them make their own custom video games!, Mobile Apps,Websites etc. Our project-based, multi-level classes are amazingly fun yet very effective in teaching creative problem solving AND emotional resilience. As your creative girl or boy has fun bringing their ideas to life, they iterate through the emotional cycle of Coding (idea->excitement->effort->frustration->more effort->triumph!) With our support and positive encouragement.
A variety of coding software’s will be deployed for students with different competency to nurture and improve their logical and critical thinking skills, which are essential criterion’s to be a successful engineer or scientist.
