What does STEAM stand for?
STEAM is an accredited learning model which is based on the five pillars: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts (Aerospace) and Math.
What is the difference between STEAM & STEM?
STEM involves the study of Science, Technology, Engineering and Technology. Whereas, STEAM involves the additional element of Arts in it. Sometimes also replaced with Astronomy. At INSPIRELY, we believe that alongside knowledge and skills, individuals should also have a good heart; hence we have inclusion of art. It's STEAM education and not only STEM.
Why is STEAM education so important?
STEAM education promotes learning experiences that allow children to explore, question, research, discover, and exercise innovative building skills. Knowledge of these varied topics help children to understand this world better and eventually shape it better.
Why is project-based learning critical to the success of STEAM education?
With the help of simple, hands-on activities, students can learn the theory and also observe its real-world implementation. This will assist them in learning quickly and efficiently. Let’s not forget how fun it is to perform these activities along with friends and an expert educator.
Why does my child need to learn STEAM?
STEAM is a unique way of learning and this kind of exposure can widen a kid’s mind in an unimaginable manner. Children are born with gifts they don’t know about, yet STEAM education helps them to discover a plethora of skills and takes them closer to discovering what they are best at.
My child is more interested in arts, why do I need to teach them STEAM?
STEAM education is regarded as a promising style of teaching because it is not bound to a single realm but is an inclusion of multiple elements. Also, the century we live in requires competitive skills to stand out and STEAM education is the way to develop life skills to prepare next generation leaders, innovators, engineers, scientists and entrepreneurs.
Why should I start teaching coding from a young age? Isn't it too early?
