STEM Program (10-14 Years)
ALOHA STEM program exposes kids to STEM careers with interactive, teacher-led projects, and online game-based programs. Our program is designed to provide engaging resources to expose students to STEM-related career opportunities and help to develop key skills as they move forward. 72% of students exposed to this program said they learned about new careers. 76% learned something about technology. And 61% and 54% learned something about math and English, respectively. Continue reading
|Informative||-||Teacher-led hands-on STEM activities|
|Fun||-||Interactive online games-based learning|
|Academically challenging||-||Each activity exercises specific academic skills and is directly correlated to academic standards|
|STEM focused||-||Activities are presented in a real-life context which highlights how STEM skills are used in the real world|
|Career Oriented||-||Activities also link to real-life STEM careers and allows the student to explore both the characteristics and demands of various STEM related fields. Many times students will ask WHY they need to learn a skill or idea and this aspect of our program answers that question.|
Kids can experience this interactive class where they learn the practical applications of science and technology in various careers. They will work to solve people-centered missions while learning about the technologies and careers that solve problems in real life. Over 90 missions are available for students to explore. Just a few of the missions include:
- Robotics Design
- Heart Surgery
- Build an Orphanage after a Natural Disaster
- Manufacturing – Design and Build a new Concept Car
- Solving Transportation Issues
- Handling a Flu Outbreak
According to studies, middle school is when children begin to form their career paths; and children are not being exposed to interesting STEM career concepts in schools during the crucial ages of 10-14. After taking this program, over 37% of students are more likely to pursue STEM classes/careers.
We integrate the processes of developing a student’s interest in STEM and building awareness of STEM career opportunities while reinforcing academic standards and skills.
