Let’s Learn About Science: STEM-Based Education
STEM is science, technology, engineering, and math. And STEM-based education is a requirement for several of today’s well-paid careers. Introducing your children to simple STEM ideas at an early age can prepare them to be more successful in life.
STEM-based education teaches children more than science and math. It focuses on hands-on learning and real-world applications to help develop broader skill sets. It can help with creativity, problem-solving, acceptance of failure, entrepreneurship, and innovation.
Stephanie Ryan is the author of Let’s Learn about Chemistry. Inspired by her son and her love of chemistry, she wrote this creative and fun book to introduce young kids to the key concepts and vocabulary of science. This book ignites curiosity in your children and makes it easy to introduce the basic foundations of science.
Stephanie Ryan is also the CEO of Stephanie Ryan Consulting, where she provides services to schools for curriculum development, assessment, training staff, and other research projects. Stephanie earned her Ph.D. in the Learning Sciences from the University of Illinois at Chicago, her Masters from the University of Illinois, and her B.S. from Saint Mary’s College.
In this episode, we talk to Stephanie about the importance of STEM-based education and how your children can begin their journies of learning science.
