Today, we stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another and it’s built around STEM Education but do you know what STEM stands for or how important it really is? STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics; it is everywhere and in everything we do like the smartphones we use, cars we drive, the Internet and even the clothes we wear. Exposing children to simple STEM ideas at an early age sets a foundation for higher learning tomorrow. Your kids need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past because it is clear that most jobs of the future will require a basic understanding of Maths and Science.
What do children benefit from STEM education?
It makes them creative thinkers: It can increase the motivation to complete tasks and create a foundation for children to keep on trying to overcome challenges.
It makes them problem solvers: Problem solving skill is a very valuable social skill that can be applied to every stage in life.
It makes them innovators and inventors: Today our society is filled with problems and letting your child learn critical thinking and problem solving skills early enough, will make them solution creators, giving them the ability to be more calculative problem solvers for the betterment of society.
What we can do for your kids
At 9jacodekids Academy we believe coding is a very powerful tool to teach STEM concepts because it is the basis for most of the technology we use today. Learning to code compels kids to think creatively and channel that creativity to build software products that solve specific problems. They learn to come up with innovative ideas as they encounter challenges in the coding process. Are you considering getting your kids involved in STEM or coding?
