An Early Learning Academy for the 21st Century Learner
Getting children excited about careers in the STEM
Early experiences shape how the brain develops and a strong foundation in the early years increases the probability of getting children excited about careers in STEM fields. Our Amazing Explorers solve problems, create solutions, foster innovation, collaborate together, and construct their own learning process. Our approach promotes invaluable skills rooted in early learning experiences and will spark the desire to continue learning throughout their lives.
Why do we focus on STEM?
An increasing number of jobs at all levels—not just for professional scientists—require knowledge of STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Math). Yet, research documents that by the time students reach third grade, a third of boys and girls have lost interest in science. That means millions of students have dismissed these careers before they advance from Middle school. By the time they graduate from High school, only 44 percent of 2013 U.S. high school graduates are ready for college-level math and 36 percent of students are ready for college-level science leaving the United States in a distant ranking in the number of industrialized nations of high school students performance in Math and Science.
At Amazing Explorers Academy® we believe that the STEM (Science, Technology and Engineering) problems begin before students begin formal schooling and that the concepts at the heart of STEAM and 21st century skills are innate in young children. Young children are natural scientists, engineers and problem-solvers.
