The Importance of STEAM and What Every Parent Must Do!

What in the world is STEAM? The acronym stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. This approach helps students develop skills they need to be successful in the future. By engaging children early, the sooner they can start developing key creative and critical thinking skills. Before their first introduction in school, parents can: 1. introduce their children to outside exploration. Pick up a rock and tell them that it as old as earth itself. In fact it is! 2. Connect to learning options. Everyone is a teacher... parents can look into the sky and see the moon, stars and on a really clear night ... the milky way. 3. Though it is proven that hands-on activities are more effective in motivating the creative child, don't wait until school starts to find out the best ways to connect to e-learning. 4. Contact retired educators, such as our at the Progressive STEAM Initiative to host science-based activities for birthday parties or community events.
