Thanks for wanting to learn more.
STEM, calls on educators to provide secondary school children opportunities to investigate important concepts (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) in a variety of settings for what educators call cross-contextual learning. For example, in addition to teaching math in a classroom, STEM CAMP takes children outside of their regular environment to practice counting real objects in the field, or other tasks that represent concepts in Math learning. Technology will expose children to computer learning, many for the first time. This type of learning will strengthen these skills, ideas, and concepts in different contexts. These tend to be more difficult subjects in school. Real world interactions will make them fun and more understandable.
STEM Camps are necessary to help African youth keep up with their counterparts in technically advanced nations. By asking the right questions, we can help stimulate investigations where students are identifying objects, making comparisons, making predictions, testing ideas, and sharing discoveries, all while observing their natural environment. Students can also explore sizes, shapes, patterns, and quantities in the process. In this way, children can learn concepts from different disciplines in different contexts, all in ways that are naturally engaging to them.
