STEM programs are becoming more and more common in early childhood education centers…with good reason!
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math. Focusing on STEM helps children develop an early interest in these scientific fields, teaching them that all of these can be fun and are within their grasp. These are the areas that far too many kids, even those with an aptitude for them, give up on because they didn’t have a strong foundation when they were younger. It’s also an excellent way for young girls to find out that they are just as capable at the sciences as anyone else, which is important for them to learn before society tells them otherwise.
A good STEM program at an early learning academy like A-2-Z encourages kids to view every aspect of the program as a fun adventure, a way to experience the world around them and learn at the same time.
