STEM for Children
What is "STEM for Children?"
STEM for Children is a public service project that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematical (STEM) games produced from Catlilli Games Llc. to introduce advanced concepts of STEM at a younger age. The need for STEM at an early age is increasing to combat the fear of failure at a later stage in life. The purpose of my project was to use board games to help spread knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) to children in underrepresented populations.
Why do we need "STEM for Children?"
According to the US Department of Commerce, jobs relating to STEM in our society are increasing exponentially. However, many students lack the knowledge needed to fulfill these skills. STEM education creates critical thinkers, and produces the next generation of innovators. In today's world, avoiding the technology in jobs, schools, and the marketplace is inevitable. Because of this, children must become more adept in STEM.
