Toddler & Preschool STEM Table?
Own The future with STEM
There is no right age to start with STEM learning. But introducing STEM later in school years hinders motivation and in many cases diminishes confidence.
STEM Toddler/Preschooler Table is exclusively designed to foster and nurture interest from a very early age to generate LOVE of STEM
According to Susan Hockfield, president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), STEM education should be introduced as early as possible to enhance children's enthusiasm, interest and exposure. She feels that waiting to motivate children to take up STEM till they reach college will not boost their confidence level.
...young children are confident in spirit, infinite in resources and eager to learn. Everything is still possible.
Capitalizing on Curiosity
Children are naturally curious. They observe the world around them with no bias. Early STEM exposure helps them make the connection to real world with intrinsic motivation of learning the WHY and the HOW.
Fostering positive relationship with Technology
Giving children context to technology with simple daily life tasks allows them to see the possibility and fun of using the technology. Today's generation of children are considered digital natives giving them ample means to connect and relate with technology. Some good, some bad. With early STEM exposure you are showing them the art of possible and the fun of fulfillment with using technology in a positive way. They will not only will be the consumers of technology but future inventors and creators of technology.
Bluring the gender bias
Early STEM exposure means that very young children are getting quality STEM foundation before any gender biases are formed. It allows both girls and boys to leverage the same knowledge before any stereotypes take hold, giving them the confidence and necessary skills to thrive in the STEM field later in life.
Enhancing language and spatial Intelligence
Backed by some research it is said that boys and girls learn differently. It is believed that girls thrive more in the areas of verbal and language skills while boys do well with spatial development. We are not taking any chances when it comes to such claims. Instead, we have designed a program that amalgamates the verbal and spatial skills to give an all round learning experience for young girls and boys
How does it work?
The STEM Table is a four part program.

E. Engineering (6 Weeks)
M. Mathematics (6 Weeks)
The program is run by Early childhood educators with STEM focus
Children must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or caretaker
Choose a class on Monday or Thursday mornings
You are not required to register for all four parts, however there is a discounted rate ($650.00 for the year) if you register for all 4 at the beginning
