We all know how exciting the latest technology is, and we also know how STEM provides kids with some of the most important tools to prepare them for the future. But it’s not always easy to provide kids with opportunities to really get their hands on this technology in a meaningful way.
stemarga offers a unique opportunity for kids to dig into robotics, 3D printing, augmented reality and more, through summer and spring camps, and after-school programs, in Cary. At the same time, students learn the math and science that they will need to pursue STEM careers, but in a fun and immersive way that can’t easily be replicated in a school environment.
Read on to learn about stemarga’s approach, see an overview of the camps, as well as to see a list of the classes that will be offered this upcoming academic year.
stemarga’s vision is to rethink education from the ground up and to make education a fun-filled, imaginative and personal journey for learners.
stemarga offers many choices, but your child can get a FREE one-day camp while you decide which program to enroll them in for the next academic year. Contact stemarga to learn more.
Our current education system focuses more on standardized tests, and can sometimes fail to encourage creativity and exploration. As a result, students can become discouraged because they do not understand the purpose of what they learn. To combat this and bridge the gaps in the learning process, stemarga formulated a ‘5E’ approach to achieve their mission: Explore, Engage, Experience, Enjoy and Embark!
stemarga’s ‘5E’ approach
Explore: Start with Why? Real-world applications of Math and Science are abundant. Explaining why one is learning what they are learning and how it would make a better world is fundamental to stemarga’s approach.
Engage: One size does not fit all in this world when it comes to education. stemarga’s method fits the learning style of individuals, whether one is a visual, auditory, reader, writer, or a kinesthetic learner. Personalization is the key to engaged learning!
Experience: Students will have the opportunity to use the latest advancements in technology such as Immersive reality (AR, VR, MR), 3D printing, and robotics to find their way of learning. Using this approach, students can be better prepared to join the workforce of the 21st century!
Enjoy: Schools need to amaze your mind with possibilities and not be considered a chore. stemarga’s method is to let students experience the joy of learning.
Embark: stemarga helps the students relate the existing curriculum to STEM jobs to embark with passion on a STEM career path. It is the key to the success of our next generation.
