Welcome to BrainSTEM!
STEM has brought about a revolution in modern science and culture. A STEM education endows students with cognitive processing skills to address a wide range of problems and to search for their solutions.
STEM education requires the acquisition of new talents and skills on the part of educators. It also requires a new way of thinking about learning. BrainSTEM is all about how to do just that. Over a series of four sessions, we will walk you through how to create a STEM program in your school beginning with understanding the human brain and how this translates directly to successful STEM lessons. Through our journey, you’ll have the opportunity to put each Session’s information into practice in your own classroom or school.
Thanks for joining us… this will be fun!
