Introduce students to the world of true project based learning and cultivate a love of learning STEM concepts from the very start.
Begin with a story that leads to an engineering and design challenge. Young children use core skills in aesthetically beautiful challenges. Design process and fabrication of scale models develops logical decision-making. Students build spatial awareness; use math skills in real world challenges; develop problem-solving tools; increase manual dexterity and focus on attention to detail. All materials are correlated to Common Core Language Arts, Common Core Mathematics, and Next Generation Science Standards.
Introduce the STEAMStart engineering design process as daily, weekly, camp, club, or long-range programming. Use the modules to customize your program to start and finish in 10 days or run over the entire school year. Storybooks, teacher guides, handouts, assessments, rubrics, resources, and webinars make STEAMStart easy to implement and fun to facilitate.
