What is S.T.E.A.M?
The STEAM education movement advocates moving away from segmented content areas, emphasizing technology to connect the subjects, and relating teaching to the outside world. STEAM impresses 21st-century skills acquisition so that students gain proficiency in collaboration, questioning, problem-solving, and critical thinking. This led to rapid expansion and segmentation of rigorous math and science courses, taught in largely the same way they’ve always been taught. The result? Saturating students with STEAM classes without accounting for engagement or interest has led to some stagnant gains in recent years.
STEAM include science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics in which science and technology is a systematic enterprise that builds and organize knowledge in the form of explanation and prediction engineering is the application of knowledge typically in the form of empirical evidence. Art is a diverse range of human activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artifacts (artworks), expressing the author’s imaginative, conceptual data, or technical skill, intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power and mathematics include structure, order, and relation that has evolved from elemental practices of counting, measuring, and describing the shapes of objects.
5 REASONS WHY S.T.E.A.M EDUCATION IS IMPORTANT FOR YOUR CHILD
STEAM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators. Innovation leads to new products and processes that sustain our economy. This innovation and science literacy depends on a solid knowledge base in the STEM areas.
It is clear that most jobs of the future will require a basic understanding of math and science. Despite these compelling facts, mathematics and science scores on average among students are lagging behind other developing countries
Education about the arts makes the children more creative which bind the thinking of your child in a divergent manner.
it makes your children different by forming their own interest which leads to innovation.
This helps children to be more focused on the different subjects likes science and mathematics leading to there academic development.
In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past
