Mad Science and STEM
What’s different about the STEM approach?
STEM is nothing new. It has been around for years now. STEM stands for: science, technology, engineering and math. STEM education is all about presenting these subjects in a multitude of diverse, experiential and integrated ways. Rather than having a class solely and strictly devoted to presenting one subject, educators making use of the STEM approach will show students how these subjects are related and intertwined.
Presenting opportunities for children to experience these subjects in a real-world environment is also crucial to the STEM approach. Often, students who have trouble memorizing facts and data will excel when presented these topics in a way that they can touch, taste, smell, hear and feel. It is by doing; by experiencing the subject that it becomes naturally embedded in our memories.
Here at Mad Science of Palm Beach, we are super-stoked about STEM! We know the power of experiential learning. We work at delivering our programs every day across south Florida in schools, community centers, fairs and festivals, preschools, and school events. Through our exciting Assemblies, Enrichment Camps, Afterschool Programs, Workshops, and Science Discoverys Days, we make science fun and exciting for children — and it’s easy, because science is FUN!
Our programming lines up with STEM’s objectives and is designed to enhance our local and national school curriculums. We have developed programs, like our in-class workshops to help teachers supplement their existing science programs. We offer in class science workshops so teachers can focus on what they do best, while we do what we do best. What do we do best? We make learning science FUN.
