As parents, we all know that STEM education has been a hot topic since the Education Bureau published its report on Promotion of STEM Education - Unleashing Potential in Innovation. STEM education can nurture a child’s creativity, logical thinking skills, problem-solving capabilities, and ability to learn on their own. There’s no doubt that STEM education can help children develop into well-rounded individuals, but how can we as parents, encourage our kids to become more engaged in STEM?
- “The key goal of STEM education is to ensure kids are not afraid of technology,” says John Huen, Founder of Koding Kingdom.
- “Support from parents is always the most important factor in children’s learning,” says Horatio Wuo, Founder of The Genius Workshop.
- “Parents can raise questions more frequently to encourage children to think in different ways, and explain the concept of cause and effect to them,” says Jackei Wong, Founder of RoboCode Academy.
Top experts in tech education believe that involving STEM in children's daily lives is one of the best ways to develop their interest in the field. Children learn and acquire skills from hands-on, practical experience. From fixing a bicycle, to using a screwdriver and replacing batteries - these are all STEM learning for our kids!
