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.
Check out the relevant programme tabs to find out more.
Charge up the excitement of students through intriguing demonstrations that get them thinking of the phenomenon behind how and why things happen, then introduce Science concepts or explain Science themes with the assistance of interactive videos from STEMWerkz Channel so students are able to see the relevance between both activities.
Have students to continue their exploration on Science themes using the guided learning journey in STEMWerkz Quests at home, or in their free time learn through play in the game-based town building zone, STEAMValley! Learning can happen beyond the classroom – it can happen anywhere!
Students are given exposure to various Science themes and hands-on investigations to pique their curiousity.
Build upon students’ foundation of Science with problem-based projects. Following The Framework (Robert H. Tai, Associate Professor of Education, UVA’s School of Education and Human Development), from identifying problems to designing solutions, we motivate students to practice ownership and stewardship while applying their Science and Engineering knowledge to bring their projects to fruition.
These projects are designed alongside the teaching team and aligned to curriculum, where opportunities are made to allow hands-on tinkering, independent research work, tagged with guidance from teachers to reinforce Science concepts where necessary.
The structure of the Explore Concepts project leverages on the Engineering Design Process, which enables students to formulate different approaches to everyday dilemmas. This process is provides support in creative problem solving and decision making, encouraging students to continuously evaluate which approach is likely to bring the greatest success.
We recognise that teacher empowerment is crucial in developing competence in their professional development, allowing them to discover their potential to in turn empower students.
Teachers and students are provided with a pedagogy-centric product that relate concepts to real world issues and topics to stimulate critical thinking. Self-directed Learning Technologies are employed to make learning an interactive experience and personalized according to each student, thus making STEM subjects fun and interesting for students.
Beyond the access and familiarity of the product, STEMWerkz, teachers are also well supported with in-depth STEM Training, including understanding of inquiry-based approaches and the application of the 5Es Intructional Model.
To support students to Learn through Making, it is crucial to be stepping stones for them to advance in their ideas and projects. The Learn thru’ Making initiative provides:
Setup of FabLab for K-12
Train the Trainers
Accreditation of Fab
To face an unpredictable world, every child will need to be able to identify and solve problems as they grow up. Through STEMWerkz, we aim to equip children with the ability to ask the right questions, define problems, and design solutions.
STEMWerkz offers multiple zones to learn and
practice Science and Engineering concepts:
Parents can utilise the Parent Portal to observe your child’s progress in STEMWerkz Quests, and get everything you need to know at a glance. Now you too have the ability to guide your child as they carry on with their learning process. Use powerful management tools to:
A subscription-based online-to-offline learning experience of an interactive digital learning course, with a lab-in-a-box for a full laboratory experience at home, empowering children to Investigate, Discover, Design, Invent (iDDi).
Each box set centres on a topic of discovery in the natural world and problem solving challenges presented in the form of an online guided learning journey, hands-on investigation-design activities for children to tinkle and discover, and interactive quiz questions that model real-life problems to be solved.
Designed for learners from 7 to 11 years old, available as standalone kits or bundled as an enrichment programmes, the titles include:
Activate Science and Engineering Processes
STEMWerkz Investigators is designed to build the young learner’s competency in science and engineering process skills through a positive spiral of discovery to engaging in arguments and constructing his own inventive ideas. As the learner progresses from the basic to advance level, the learning experiences will scaffold to help him attain more complex processes by building on simpler ones.
A Complete Learning Experience
Each learning journey in STEMWerkz Investigators follows an inquiry-based approach through the 5Es instructional model to help our learners explore and apply scientific knowledge and concepts in authentic settings.
Key Components in Each Hands-On Session
Each STEMWerkz Lab-in-Class Box contains equipment for your students to conduct investigations in up to 6 science and engineering themes.
Each hands-on session is supported by:
Designed by experts to activate interest, promote hands-on tinkering and investigations, enabling effective application of knowledge in practical settings!
Each Box contains all the materials required for the course, parents do not need to prepare additional materials.
Course kits include:
Through specially curated interactive online activities and challenges to help our children grasp core science concepts and learn to apply them in daily situations.
With the help of a detailed parent guide that is designed by STEM pedagogy experts, parents can now journey with their children in this interactive learning process, facilitation the learning of STEM knowledge and practices through clever questioning, as they are guided to pique the curiosity of their children and celebrate each attempt to investigate and to design solutions to solve new problems.
