From budding artist to future farmer, STEM's importance extends to all careers
Does your child dream of being an astronaut, doctor or engineer? If so, STEM summer camps like Bricks 4 Kidz are a natural fit for their interests. But what about kids who dream of being an artist, writer or farmer? Just because a child’s ambitions live outside traditional science, technology, engineering and math subject areas doesn’t mean STEM activities won’t help them succeed.
Think about it: STEM is everywhere. No matter what career path your child selects, STEM will be a critical part of their day. From a vast forest to a skyscraper, STEM appears as vibrant in nature as it does in the inner city. It doesn’t matter if the skills are applied at home or work. Fluency in STEM subjects will benefit your child in countless ways.
Critical thinking: STEM teaches important critical thinking skills that create future problem solvers. When building a LEGO® model, kids must follow directions and learn from mistakes. If the model doesn’t turn outright the first time, they must think creatively and logically to find the solution. This also teaches the importance of patience and resilience.
Technology: Technology continues to evolve at a lightning-fast pace, which means jobs from the arts to agriculture will require access to the computer and other digital devices. Strong technical skills are a must for the next generation of thought leaders. Just imagine what technology will allow us to do in another 10 or 20 years!
Arts: STEM and the arts have more in common than most people think. Architects create amazing structures thanks to engineering and math skills. Graphic design software harnesses the powers of technology and math. Painters learn to blend colors and manipulate designs with science and math skills, too. In these and countless other ways, creativity and STEM coexist throughout the arts.
Innovation: STEM camps encourage innovation, and this in turn creates future innovators in every industry. Whether they are building a robot, developing an animated series or creating an amazing moveable LEGO® model at a Bricks 4 Kidz camp, children learn that creation and innovation are fun. With a mindset focused on innovation, the sky’s the limit.
With today’s STEM programs, it’s never been more chic to be a geek. Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are household names. Decades ago STEM enthusiasts were the class nerds. Today, they are the cool kids who are going to be tomorrow’s inventors and business leaders.
