Demand for careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) are steadily increasing, and people who understand STEM related topics are more competitive, productive and engaged. Skills developed through STEM provide them with the foundation to succeed at school and beyond employer demand for STEM qualifications and skills is high and will continue to increase in the future.
However, many teachers and students find STEM boring, irrelevant, and hard to master. That need not be the case!
Provide our children with exposure to STEM from a young age to inculcate interest and increase job opportunities in future with in-demand skills
Eliminate Challenges and Common Misconceptions of STEM
Close the gaps and help students recognise the critical roles that STEM plays in our society by:
Teachers’ confidence and enthusiasm can go a long way towards engaging students & encouraging them to be responsive. Well-supported teachers are able to deliver lessons with ease, and in return be support pillars for students in their education journey.
Utilise technology to make learning an interactive experience that is personalized according to each learner, thereby making STEM subjects fun and interesting for students.
A quality STEM education goes way beyond the traditional textbook lesson and corresponding worksheet method of teaching. It calls for worthwhile, hands-on experiences that relate concepts to real world issues and topics, stimulate critical thinking and make students hungry for more.
The K-12 STEM Journey is designed to meet the needs of teachers (by providing relevant training) and students (by keeping them engaged), through the various programmes: See Possibilities, Explore Concepts, Empowering Teachers and Students, Learn through Making.
