The fields of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) are at the forefront of today’s modern innovations and inventions, but without a positive STEM identity in early education, students may end up avoiding STEM subjects for the remainder of their academic careers.
During the earliest years, infants and toddlers develop 700 neural connections every second. These biologically driven neurological processes and natural curiosity of how the world works make early childhood an optimal time to introduce children to scientific inquiry.
Getting STEM education as soon as possible is so important for early childhood education. That’s why our Foundational Fluencies STEM kits can be used in Pre-K and Kindergarten. Our Foundational Fluencies Program focuses on helping young students develop important competencies that are prerequisite for a lifetime of STEM learning.
Continuing our mission to provide STEM learning opportunities for students in pre-kindergarten through the 8th grade, we’re thrilled to announce updated versions of our two STEM programs. These programs are equipped with a variety of reusable engineering materials that range from basic building blocks to programmable robotics.
Introducing STEM into the class curriculum before the age of eight can have a significant impact on a student’s academic success for years to come. Historically, standardized academic achievements have placed a lot of emphasis on literacy in early childhood education, and less emphasis on STEM curriculum.
