Experiencing the Medieval themed week at STEM camp

stem camp
We love the concept of STEAM education, and I have always encouraged this type of learning to my children through books, hands-on activities we do, and experiences we have. This summer my children were excited to experience a week of STEM camp and they participated in the Medieval themed week. Each week of STEM camp is dedicated to four different themes, so children have a choice of picking their favourite and having different experiences.

STEAM education encouraging kits from Twiggle Toys

I love the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) education approach, as this method encourages children to have fun while they develop age appropriate essential skills needed for lifelong learning. Since our children were babies, we have always been enthusiastic about hands-on-learning. We have used creative approaches, everyday materials, kits and tools to further their knowledge.

STEM Education at Home and Scratch Book Giveaway

stem education books
With informative STEM education geared books from DK, it is easy for us to encourage our children to keep their minds active and practice a variety of age appropriate concepts. Instead of children playing games on the computer, with Scratch they can make their own games and practice math concepts such as variables, coordinates, angles, problem solving, numeracy, as well as improve language, art and creative skills.

Straws and Connectors Encourage Developmental Skills

straws and connectors
I favour S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) education, as I believe it has lots of developmental benefits for our children and it helps them to gain wider perspectives. It is important for parents and educators to encourage children to understand basic concepts of these subjects, so they can make inquiries, explore and learn. Giving appropriate tools for exploration and play has direct impact on a child's development in a variety of levels such as cognitive, physical, literacy, numeracy, and emotional growth.
