Young minds are naturally curious, so our classes are designed to feed this innate curiosity. By incorporating creativity and problem-solving within science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), our little thinkers are developing better observation and explanatory skills and increasing their ability to make predictions and hypotheses using their critical judgment. During each session, a new topic of science is introduced to them, and the students perform two or three experiments by themselves regarding that topic. Sometimes we introduce STEM books and they go creative making projects or solving the problem discussed in the book inspired by their own creativity or the illustrations of the book. Projects are building towers, dog houses, how to overcome gravity, making a floating object sink, or making the sinking object float. Our sessions are each unique, and built to engage young learners with STEM-based fun, and teach essential elements of science in the everyday world. Learning points: • Introduces fundamental science concepts through experiments, creative activities, and guiding the children to make observations and hypothesize results. • Improves communication skills, encouraging students to explain their thoughts throughout the activities. • Develop fine motor skills by practicing working with different materials to cut, glue, and create science crafts and projects. • Spark imagination using STEM books, like Christy Hale’s book, Dreaming Up. We use the book to try recreating construction projects from the illustrations.
