STEM is an integrated approach to education that encompasses Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. It involves problem-based learning where students use their knowledge and skills to navigate real-world situations and design solutions to everyday problems. It is an educational approach that focuses on why and how the world works around us, allowing kids to deepen their curiosity and understanding of their place in the world. This perspective allows kids to see a future where they are the creators and builders of that future.
STEM is integral to the future of our workforce and economy. It is estimated there will be over 3.5 million open STEM jobs by 2025. It is our responsibility to ensure our kids are prepared to thrive in that market. Interest in STEM starts early and exposure to high-quality programs is paramount to keeping kids engaged in STEM in later years.
Aside from knowledge and skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, kids learn to stretch their curiosity and creativity as they solve real-world problems. They learn to communicate collaboratively to solve problems and write computer code. They learn the fundamentals of electrical engineering and computer programming, and they build their confidence in STEM as they become more adept at writing increasingly complex code and learning how to build circuits.
This class is 2 hours long and only offered once during the convention.
The Excalibur Solutions STEM Academy sets itself apart by focusing on the specific skills necessary to understand the complexity of electronics. The lessons and activities in the Content Library are designed to teach kids the fundamentals of electrical engineering and computer programming in a self-paced environment. The lessons are engaging, hands-on, minds-on and challenge students to expand their creativity as they play and design games using the STEM principles learned in the Content Library.
Yes. The Content Library is self-paced and designed to be used independently or with the help of a parent. We do suggest you help your student schedule a consistent time to visit the Content Library daily.
