STEM: The new paradigm for learning Math & Science
STEM education is a trans-disciplinary method of learning that aims to teach students using concepts and practices from the four core disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
As Dr. Mark Sanders of Virginia Tech University, a pioneer in integrative STEM education puts it, “It’s about technological/engineering design-based learning approaches that intentionally integrate the concepts and practices of science and mathematics education with the concepts practices of technology and engineering education”. It is important to understand that just having a Math lab or Science Lab or Science or Math activities does not construe delivering STEM education
The Creya XEL Studio Based Learning Program is India’s only true integrative STEM education program that is designed to be holistic, experiential, and geared to deliver 21st century skills while incorporating Design Thinking approaches.
STEM Education: Imperative for Success
Careers today are about what employees can do with the wealth of information freely available, rather than with acquiring information. STEM education will help create the knowledge workers, scientists, engineers, thinkers and innovators that our society and industry require. It will play a vital role in the competitiveness of India in the global economy, and in our future economic prosperity.
In School, STEM education frees learning from the confines of subject-based silos. It is not about learning Math or Science in isolation, but about learning concepts in an integrative, inter-disciplinary way, using the technology & digital tools available, with an engineering approach. Along the way, children gain core 21st Century skills such as collaborative, project-based learning and design thinking while being fully engaged and immersed in learning
