In the education environment, the acronym S.T.E.M. holds great value; these letters stand for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics — fields which are part of many curricula. Generating interest in these fields can have tremendous benefits for children, but they can also have fun in the process of learning. At Rollhaven, children can do just that: learn all about S.T.E.M. and have fun with our S.T.E.M specific field trips! Take a look at how these fields are important:
Schools generally have educational programs in science and mathematics, but students do not always have the opportunity to explore engineering and technology. Even if electives are offered in these subjects during high school, the fear of the unknown can overwhelm young learners. Attending a field trip that introduces these disciplines can help to overcome some of those qualms.
As your children reach the end of their high school careers, you will likely find them pursuing various scholarships to fund their college education. In fact, they may find scholarships particularly in the S.T.E.M. disciplines. When they have a solid learning base and an interest in the field, the opportunity to receive these scholarships can grow.
Right now, participating in these field trips might just be fun for your kids, but when they become older, they can fondly recall the experiences that they had and transmute those experiences into college studies and career opportunities.
Our S.T.E.M. Field Trips focus on these important fields and they engage and inform your young learners in ways that can truly shape their futures! Schedule your school’s field trip today!
