STEM education is the latest trend in pedagogics. STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a unified learning system based on real-world applications.
This philosophy is well incorporated in Engino's DISCOVERING STEM series covering a broad area of subjects, all interconnected with each other. These include Mechanics and Simple Machines, Structures, Physics and Newton's Laws, Renewable Energy and Programmable Robotics.
Each concept is taught thoroughly, not in a simple theoretical and abstract way, but within an engaging manner providing detailed explanations of the different scientific principles applied and incorporating innovative experimental activities for hands-on learning. Students actually discover the scientific notions by themselves while experimenting with Engino models, through a fun and comprehensive process. As a result, the teacher transforms from a traditional teaching source into a facilitator who helps students to learn on their own.
