“Leadership tomorrow depends on how we educate our students today—especially in science, technology, engineering and math.” – President Barack Obama, September 16, 2010

DEEP UNDERSTANDING ABOUT STEM

What is STEM?

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 while having fun and introduce the concepts of robotics, electronics and generally being creative with these kinds of devices.

Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.

WHY STEM?

Let's explain why your kid need STEM

NEED

We experience computers and its digital creations every day. It is not enough to just know how to use a computer anymore. Creating, developing computational thinking and ability to personalize & customize applications to solve any problems are needed skills today.

Only 16 percent of Pakistan’s student are proficient in mathematics and interested in a STEM career. Pakistan is falling behind internationally in science among industrialized nations. In our competitive global economy, this situation is unacceptable.

LEARNING BY DOING

Apart from a direct DIY (Do It Yourself) approach, we also have something which every DIY enthusiast goes through – learning from mistakes. Be it from the perspective of debugging, solving issues relating to the physical model of the bot, or simple tightening of the screws; the creator makes many mistakes and correcting them is indeed an important aspect of the learning curve.

This makes it important for the student to look for errors and solve them, on their own. This in its own right is something which can make better problem solvers than what conventional education brings to you.

BLENDED LEARNING

What separates STEM from the traditional science and math education is the blended learning environment and showing students how the scientific method can be applied to everyday life. It teaches students computational thinking and focuses on the real-world applications of problem solving.

ROBOTICS

Easy way to colaborate with our company

Today’s students are facing a future propelled by rapid technological change. They need to learn how to adapt to the changing technological environment and solve complex problems that require perseverance and out-of-the-box thinking. Robotics programs teach middle school students how to approach these real-world problems in an innovative, yet systematic, way. By building and programming robots, students learn how to channel their creativity and use it to create the best possible solution for a particular problem.

Robotics programs can help students discover a passion for STEM fields, which are among the fastest-growing occupations. Discovering an interest in STEM early in life could lead to rapid career advancement for the students later in life.

Goals and Mission

This program will identify and implement effective approach for improving STEM teaching and learning and promote STEM education experiences that prioritize hands-on learning to increase student engagement, interest, and achievement in the STEM fields.

Our goal is to teach children Computer Programming while having fun and introduce them to concepts of robotics, electronics and generally being creative with these kinds of devices . Main Goal is to provide competent students with high learning experience, through rigorous and relevant content, that mainly focuses on hands on activity in science, technology, engineering and mathematics laboratories, to be productive and successful citizens by developing a strong work ethic and the higher-level critical thinking skills needed to solve problems in the real world.

To Inspire not only children but also the conventional education system of Pakistan, so they too can start including STEM courses in their curriculum to prepare children for the constantly evolving World.

PROGRAMMING

We interact with code dozens of times before we leave our houses in the morning. From shutting off the alarm clock to checking our phones in the morning to using the microwave to heat up our food. Computer programmers are one of the most in-demand professions today. Over 50% of the fastest growing jobs in the US are in STEM education fields.

Our young people need to understand how things work, how they break, and how to fix them. Contrary to popular belief coding itself is not difficult, the difficulty lies in debugging coding errors. When students learn to debug their code, they’re learning the process of finding solutions to their errors and being able to view things through a critical problem-solving lens.

Curriculum is designed to engage young minds and help them advance from being merely computer users to creators. Participants learn the basics of creating using computers through some unplugged activities followed by drag-and-drop programming, Various tools are utilized including code.org and Scratch programming. They apply their programming skills to create simple programs, animations and games. Here at EPTeack Your Kids can Code in much practical and creative way to have more better understanding about the syntax and logics, we have many ideas to bring coding to the classroom in a fun inquiry-based STEM curriculum.

MULTIDIRECTIONAL EXPERIENCE

CURRICULUM

Basic Math and Science

Basic Math and Science are thought through a problem-solving format allowing differentiation within the course and emphasizing applications, flexibility and creativity.

Advance Math and Science

Advance math and science build on foundations and explore topics in real world context to help facilitate learning.

Engineering

Engineering design process and scientific thinking skills are introduced early in our program.

Programing

Foundation of computational thinking begin with coding mini projects and lead to advanced coding that focuses on automation of electrical machines and devices.

Robotics

On the foundation of Coding, Engineering, math and Science, Basic Robotics will be introduced in creative and fun way to make it more engaging and learning.
