Science – Technology – Engineering – Arts – Math
Children have beautiful open minds that are naturally curious. When the curriculums for science, technology, engineering and math are engaging, students are able to discover their talents.
At Stepping Stone School, we have known since our inception that the arts and creativity are critical elements of any curriculum and key to science and math comprehension. Our students dive deeply into Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math – and discover how all of these subjects are interrelated.
STEAM enhances Platinum Learning for Life™ by inspiring curiosity in students of all ages. Our curriculum helps children explore and retain technical concepts by incorporating games, music and drawing through creative engagement and exciting activities.
Asking “What” Opens Up a New World
“What” questions start a conversation and encourage critical thinking skills. By focusing questions around what children have observed and noticed, you are helping them to develop valuable communication and observation skills and build their confidence by giving them questions they can answer as experts.
Exploring STEAM: What Your Child Will Learn
Science is a way of thinking. Observing, experimenting, making predictions, sharing discoveries, asking questions, and wondering how things work.
Technology is a way of doing. Using innovative tools, being inventive, identifying problems, and making things work.
Engineering is a way of doing. Solving problems, using a variety of materials, designing and creating and building things that work.
Art is a way of expressing. Exploring visual and performing arts with a variety of materials by using imagination and creativity to translate ideas into something tangible.
Math is a way of measuring. Math is sequencing (1,2,3,4…), patterning (1,2,1,2,1,2…) and exploring shapes, volume (more or less), and size (bigger or smaller).
