Summer is finally here and we’re all excited to lean into the more relaxing parts of this time of year. For our kids, summer break means a mental vacation from school and stepping out of the structure of learning. But did you know that many kids lose the knowledge and skills they learned throughout the school year over summer break?
This is why it’s so important to keep your kids engaged with the skills they learned–like reading, science, and math–all year long. Stemville is the perfect place to beat the heat and keep your kids learning all summer. They will love everything about the fun, interactive space that will light up their imaginations and have their minds working hard, without the structure of a classroom.
Why should kids participate in STEM activities throughout the summer?
Kids should participate in STEM activities throughout the summer because it allows them to explore concepts and solve problems in a fun and interactive manner. These activities enhance their understanding and retention of concepts they have already learned in school.
STEM activities foster curiosity and imagination by encouraging kids to ask questions and think outside the box. By participating in STEM throughout the summer, kids not only have a fun and rewarding experience, but they also develop essential skills and knowledge that will benefit them academically.
What are the benefits of kids engaging in STEM activities at different ages?
In early childhood, STEM activities can stimulate curiosity and a love for learning. It develops foundational skills like counting, sorting, and basic problem solving. Hands-on discovery also encourages exploration. For children in elementary school, STEM activities enhance critical thinking and logical reasoning abilities. They cultivate creativity and innovation through design challenges, which builds a strong foundation in STEM concepts.
