Research tells us that children’s early experience builds brain architecture and lays the foundation for one’s lifelong thinking skills and approach to learning, both critical roots of STEM success. After all, the STEM disciplines require not only content knowledge but also robust thinking dispositions—such as curiosity and inquiry, questioning and skepticism, assessment and analysis—as well as a strong learning mindset and confidence when encountering new information or challenges. These need to be developed in a child’s early education, beginning in infancy and continuing through third grade to lay the roots for STEM success. (McClure et al., 2017)
By incorporating technology in learning we are approaching education that is relevant today and the future. Our educational model is designed to promote these skills encouraging a growth mindset. We give our students the opportunity to learn through engaging in their development preparing them for their future. Essential tools for lifelong personal and IT development.
