A STEM curriculum introduces students to science, technology, engineering, and mathematical concepts and can be taught using a cross-curricular method, such as combining robotics and mathematics.
Whether you’re a Math student undertaking your IGCSE or a Computer Science student completing the IB, anyone pursuing either of such core subjects is a part of the STEM community.
Problem-solving is a vital component of any child’s education and students who go on to pursue a STEM-related career would have acquired the ability to solve real-life problems through exposure to similar predicaments at a young age
Providing students with quality STEM lessons positively impacts their understanding, retention, and inclination to continue learning STEM subjects further down the line, which in turn exposes them to incredible scope for opportunity in the future.
Not only do these students benefit from having the liberty to choose from a variety of STEM courses in universities worldwide, but they can also find job security and lucrative employment packages if they pursue careers in STEM
The importance of taking these core subjects before and during high school is to meet needs in the future. According to research, more than 70% of jobs in the future will require students to have STEM skills and this is why some schools have started raising the importance of STEM core subjects within their curriculums. Such subjects assist students in critical thinking and integrate real-life applications from childhood itself. Students are placed in situations where they are bound to solve problems on their own, and this instills a solid foundation at a young age.
Moreover, the curriculum helps children acquire transferable skills since all subjects are interlinked. The core focus of both a high level of technical skill and a rigorous approach to problem-solving remains the same in all STEM fields. Critical thinking and application outside the classroom are not the only features of mathematics, but they further inculcate a sense of responsibility within all academic disciplines.
Whether you are an astrophysicist, a software developer, a psychologist, or a health consultant, you are functioning based on the mathematical skills you have gained in your student life, and math, science, and programming are universal languages that enable teams from around the world to collaborate on difficult problems.
Our team of instructors and educators believe students must be exposed to skills of analyzing, investigating, and making judgments through the proofs of theorems, mathematical strategies, pattern investigations, and basic foundational work like Geometry, Algebra, etc.
Through our courses, we also encourage our students to dig deeper into the subject and have a focus on thorough understanding.We encourage students to delve into real and abstract applications of any mathematical ideas being taught, with and without the use of technology (such as computers, scientific calculators as well as graphic display calculators).
These courses are important to build a foundation from a young age because math has a ladder-like approach where one rung leads to the next. The use of technology, diagrams, physical objects, and manipulatives assists our students in confidently solving the most complex of problems.
Furthermore, we also place importance on mathematical competitions, and focus on providing the best support and extension when it comes to tutoring and preparing students for contests such as the American Mathematics competitions. These activities help students to develop the analytical skills needed for future STEM careers in an innovative society.
Ultimately, our goal is to provide students with a strong mathematical foundation that will open doors to career opportunities regardless of the field they want to pursue.
Highly prestigious institutions such as Columbia University, Caltech, MIT, etc, have wonderful programs and offer a variety of core courses for Engineering, Mathematics, Technology, and Scientific research, and colleges such as NYU and Brown University offer Communication and Media Studies, or Media design at universities all of which will need skills in data science.
Our courses enrich our students with the right mindset to develop and adapt to today’s rapidly evolving environment which prepares them for a successful career journey in the future.
