STEM education is an interdisciplinary approach to learning. It integrates the four disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics into relevant but fun activities meant to build and sustain interest as well as establish foundational knowledge in young children. We strive to build children’s confidence by acknowledging their abilities,…Read More
For kids, science and math aren’t always the most exciting subjects around. Compared to other classes like gym and art lessons, they might seem hard to understand. By taking the right steps, you can make STEM learning fun, exciting and more enjoyable.
Here are some things to consider:
"I liked that we got to do projects and take them home. Building the bridge was fun! That was my favorite activity because we worked with a partner and we had to brainstorm ideas. I liked that if it falls we got to try again. STEM is fun and I learned a lot!" - Ryan P. from Shrewsbury, MA
"We do fun things and we learn new stuff at the same time. My favorite is "building a house" for a stuffed giraffe. Mrs. Courtemanche tested our house with a hair dryer and water squirter. I really like Engineering ... so building a house was fun!" - Kaylee I. from Leominster, MA
"STEM is amazing! I love it! STEM is fun and cool! I like all of the stations the teacher puts up for us. I like doing experiments! I liked the snow lesson because it looked like snow, but didn't feel like snow. I liked when we learned about bones because they are important." - Harper P. and Nova P. from Wayland, MA
"I like learning about Science and Math the most. I liked when we built our own rockets and somebody shot one on the school roof!" - Elizabeth S. from Worcester, MA
Our son loved his first STEM class! His first question every day when we're on our way to school is if it's to go to STEM class! I've loved hearing him explain what he learned and how much he's enjoyed the various activities. He told me the other day that he loves STEM class which I rarely hear when it comes to school activities! Miss Barbara was such a cheerful and enthusiastic educator and I am grateful that she has given my son the love of learning at such a young age. Thank you!
I really enjoyed meeting you today. Sophia seemed to have a great time and used her telescope all day! I love your approach to teaching STEM. I enjoyed browsing your website. Thank you for sending an email with pictures of the kids and the STEM at home ideas...LOVE IT!
We want to thank you for such a great program. Laura is thrilled to be there every Monday. She can't stop talking about what she is learning! Thanks!
The students of the Northborough Community love the STEM is Fun program. We have been offering STEM through Northborough Recreation for 1 year now. All of our classes fill right away with waiting list. The parents and kids have been asking for more educational programs in town and STEM Beginnings has delivered. Barbara has created a fun and exciting way to teach these difficult subjects.
STEM Beginnings is the best class I have enrolled my kids in. Miss Barbara is so wonderful with the children. She keeps them focused and engaged and they have fun while learning. My kids look forward to class each week and we look forward to many more sessions!
