What is S.T.E.A.M.?

You probably know by now that incorporating S.T.E.A.M. into learning is becoming the norm in most curriculum. According to the IAS, STEAM Education is defined as an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.

S.T.E.A.M. learning can start with kids as young as Toddlers and continue through to post secondary education. It’s helpful to encourage experimentation in kids and help them to work creatively to solve problems and come to solutions.

Do you have curious kids who love to explore and learn? Here are a few ways you can simply incorporate S.T.E.A.M. learning into play without them even knowing it!

1. Provide elastic bands, recycled bottle caps and popsicle sticks and ask your children to create a simple catapult to get an object from point A to point B.

2. Provide magnetic tiles and have your child create a maze. Use a straw and pompoms to blow the pompoms through that maze.

3. Use painters tape and cardboard paper towel rolls to create a marble run on your wall.

4. Practice problem solving by laying out Popsicle sticks and having your kids create letters and shapes with nothing but Popsicle sticks.

5. Set out of a LEGO pattern on one side of a base and have your children use the LEGOs to create a symmetrical pattern on the opposite side

6. Set out red, blue and yellow play doh and challenge your kids to create all the colours of a rainbow.
