“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”

WHY S.T.E.M. Education?

STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.

 

Little Stark will provide project-based, pedagogically relevant learning environments that will give the students opportunities to connect academic content to the real world by actively engaging them in designing solutions and models to solve everyday problems. The engineering design process is built using the main learning theories that drive STEM Education such as: inquiry-based learning, situated learning, problem-based learning, and constructivism.

 

STEM has, after all, been tied to developing 21st century skills and a variety of other skills that are essential for success: critical thinking and problem solving, creativity and innovation, communication, collaboration, and entrepreneurship, to name a few.

Sounds cool!

STEM + ART = S.T.E.A.M.

Edu experts believe that STEM is incomplete without the additional of an “A” for art. STEAM is the new STEM!

At Challenge Island STEM and the arts naturally go hand in hand – from the background music to the art supply boxes in our tribal treasure chests to the amazing aesthetic touches our students add to their functional creations.
