DISCOVERING STEM series was developed by qualified teachers and academics, following the latest pedagogical trends in order to combine theory with practice. The series deals with the core subjects of STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics - in a fascinating and enjoyable way. Each package includes a comprehensive activity booklet, covering a broad area of subjects: Mechanics and Simple Machines, Structures, Newtons Laws, Renewable Energy and even Programmable Robotics!
The combined packages of Simple Machines and Physics Resource Master Set include 5 and 8 activity booklets respectively. The purpose of STEM education - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics - is to provide students with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience in order to cope with the technological challenges of the future. Modern pedagogical theories suggest that the study of engineering should be incorporated in all other subjects, starting from elementary level. DISCOVERING STEM series, offers a practical solution for facing all these educational issues, aiding the teacher to engage students in STEM disciplines in a fun, exciting and interesting way! The educational packages are also ideal as a home learning tool! The series covers a broad area of subjects: Mechanics and Simple machines, Structures, Newton’s Laws, Renewable Energy and even Programmable Robotics.
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.
