S.T.E.M. vs. S.T.E.A.M.
The S.T.E.M. to S.T.E.A.M. movement has been taking root over the past several years and is surging forward as a positive mode of action to truly meet the needs of a 21st century economy. S.T.E.M. alone misses several key components that many employers, educators, and parents have voiced as critical for our children to thrive in the present and rapidly approaching future.
Here at S.T.E.A.M Station, we provide experiences that foster a sense of self as a confident individual, learning self-control and developing positive interaction with others. We do this while nurturing and supporting each individual child, teachers also strive to encourage a sense of community and importance of each child as a participating member of our family.
We work to ensure a childhood experience filled with adventure, play, investigation and friendship. We care very much about the children and families within our school and community.
Thank you for considering being a part of our family!
Why is S.T.E.A.M. education important?
S.T.E.A.M education focuses on practical skills in growing industries, exposing young minds to them early and preparing them with vital skills they can grow with.
Teaching our youth about the complexities and simplicities of the world around us at an early age can greatly benefit development. However if these teachings are merely taught and not put into context, they can seem abstract. ex: "the sky is blue" can be applied to both science and art.
School can be an exciting time for a young mind and given the right stimulation, that excitement can continue on throughout the entire school experience, fostering a deep love of learning and applying skills that will last a lifetime.
