Here are some amazing secrets that Santa wished you knew: SECRET’S ABOUT STEM EDUCATION- The education for the future.

Here are 9 reasons why children need STEM education:

Prepares for the Future:

STEM allows children to get ready and qualified for high paying super cool jobs that are on the rise! Our children are taught 21st century skills such as innovation, collaboration, communication, and technology integration. The best jobs in the future would be in Science, Technology, Engineering and Medical. There are already incredible breakthroughs in the respective fields and will definitely be more with time as your children get into it.

Leadership:

You would want to inspire your little ones to become confident leaders. STEM is motivational and kids get to learn from their role models. If introduced at an early age, it allows them to imbibe leadership skills. The earlier they start, the sooner they will learn them and will have more time to polish the skills. With more and more advancements in STEM, global leadership is changing and as our children grow up, they can lead us in the fields.

Kid’s Favorite Way of Learning:

The best thing about STEM is the way it is taught to the students and children. Kids conduct experiments, build structures, and flex their curiosity and questioning muscles. Programs are not only uniquely designed to meet the intellectual needs of the respective ages of the students, but are also thoroughly studied to ensure that the children genuinely enjoy the learning process. And the more the student enjoys, the more they learn.

Exploration:

STEM allows children to explore and learn more about the world. Ranging from video game creation to deep-sea exploration to medicine to the vast field of engineering. STEM has helped us in real life and they can understand how it can help the human race in the long run.

Retention:

Holidays are great fun for the kids and after working hard during the year. They need some break to relax and unwind and play in the snow. But you can only play so much before you start getting bored. STEM classes should do the trick and since its fun to do, they don’t need to worry about things getting boring or studying again.

Socializing like Santa:

With STEM education, they will get to interact and socialize with like-minded children and let their curiosity flow. They will learn teamwork and team play and that will be beneficial in growing friendships and buddies.

Problem Solving:

Perhaps the most important skill the children can learn is problem solving. They will be presented with multiple challenges in their STEM related coursework. They will then cultivate skills of problem solving to overcome these obstacles and come out at the other end successful. Even if they do not end up working in a STEM related field, problem solving a skill that will help them no matter which field they are in professionally.

Critical Thinking:

As information begins to get incredibly easy to get, so does the risk of false information being circulated also increases. It is imperative for a person to cultivate a sense of judgment that can help them identify these false claims and uncover the real truth. Critical thinking is the objective analysis of facts to form an unbiasedrational, and skeptical judgment. It is also a very useful tool in STEM and something the previous skill relies on. STEM follows an organized process that leads to strong beliefs. Critical thinking teaches us to be analytic and ask questions. And, through these questions, we can form sound judgments that lead to innovative solutions.

Guarantees a successful future:

From the knowledge they gain from the STEM education, they will have what the real world needs. However, most of the children who are enrolled in the STEM program study further in the field and make careers in these fields. Science and Tech along with Engineering and Medical fields have always been the most innovative fields. Notwithstanding, there is always something new happening each day and there is always need of more qualified personnel to work in these fields. With STEM education, their future is secure as there will always be need of them in the present and the future. Even if the job doesn’t exist, in a few years when the child graduates, there will be a huge demand in that relevant job.
