SKOOL21 offers STEM learning for our learners aged 5 to 7. Using magnetic structure building and marble run challenges, learners solve challenging mathematical problems of time, measurement, number operations, geometry and ordinal and whole numbers to practically implement mathematics through projects. The course is aligned with the mathematics curriculum taught in the class. The only difference is that now in this course, the knowledge is more hands-on and practical, which engages the learners and develops 21st-century skills.
STEM Resource Book used in the course offers STEM challenges aligned with mathematics national curriculum objectives. It develops learners’ communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity as they are challenged to design and build solutions based on their mathematics learning in their class. Therefore, this course offers learners an opportunity to have a practical learning experience and reinforces their classroom learning through hands-on. Additionally, STEM projects are developed based on the 8-rubrics of STEM.org, which enables the learner to develop 21st-century skills and engineering design thinking and empowers the learner to use technology to derive the solution.
