The Benefits of Bringing STEM Workshops and Classes to Schools
Learning doesn’t stop when kids leave the classroom, and there are a lot of benefits to adding STEM workshops and classes to the curriculum.
With kids returning to school after months at home, it’s the perfect time to think about supplementing classroom learning with some extra STEM learning to help kids get ahead.
Here are the benefits of bringing STEM workshops and classes to schools
They reinforce behaviours that are expected in the classroom
STEM workshops and classes encourage good communication, being respectful of others, being organised, and using critical thinking skills which are important in and out of the classroom. What’s more, fun and engaging STEM sessions will help kids develop a positive attitude towards learning.
They can help kids perform better at school
Kids who attend STEM workshops and classes will get the chance to work on their communication skills, problem-solving skills, and much more, as well as increasing their understanding of STEM concepts which will only benefit their academic performance.
They can bring what kids have learned in the classroom to life
Often it can be tough to engage kids in STEM learning as they can’t see how what they are learning applies to real life. STEM workshops and classes are hands-on and they can show kids how STEM works in the real world so they have a better understanding of what they’ve learned in the classroom.
They engage every child, no matter what their preferred learning style
Traditional classroom learning can be difficult for kids who aren’t ‘academic.’ STEM workshops and classes engage kids in a variety of ways that will appeal to all learning styles. No child is left behind.
They help prepare kids for the future
STEM workshops and classes help kids explore their interests, teach them STEM skills, and life skills so they are prepared for the world of work, whatever their desired job role.
Teaching kids STEM skills at an early age and nurturing an interest in STEM subjects and careers can help to address the current STEM skills gap.
