When we call attention to STEM, there is so much more we want to talk about other than just coding, programming, or lab coats. You might have read many blog posts touching on the subject of STEM in context with students and its importance for them, but there is another aspect to it that we often miss out on.
STEM education predominantly refers to the study and learning of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics subjects. STEM learning is usually put forward with hands-on experience of real-world problems. The other aspect of STEM learning that should be highlighted more often, is in relevance with us. With teachers, parents, you, me, and all of us who are responsible for the children around us and help them sustain growth in a world that is becoming ever so challenging.
Moonshot Jr, a Silicon Valley company, in an endeavor of bestowing the next generation of critical thinkers, entrepreneurs, and innovators, has collaborated with Kanvas Kidz. Kanvas Kidz focuses on the journey of the discovery of toddlers, discovering one’s surroundings, discovering one’s self.
At Kanvas Kidz, kids discover ideas and thoughts besides covering content, discovering questions of answers, and not just answering the questions. All this happens in Kanvas Kidz through a process of learning that turns out to be a journey that the kids will experience throughout their Kanvas tenure.
Moonshot Jr, a successful and growing educational body, recognizes the importance of an entrepreneurial and innovative mindset and how it will be critical for the future of work. Moonshot Jr now has a global footprint that is transforming the lives of children. Its meticulously designed 4-stage (patent-pending) Innovator program aims to prepare children for the future of work by imbibing technical, entrepreneurial, soft skills via product-first learning.
In an attempt to reach a larger audience and make education accessible to children who are deprived of it, Moonshot Jr has joined hands with Kanvas Kids, which possesses a team of bachelors qualified teachers and diploma qualified educators who are responsible for integrating the requirements of the early years learning framework into learning contexts, to ensure that the learning outcomes of children are achieved.
Moonshot Jr comprises industry veterans who have built multiple successful companies, as well as a team of experts who continuously work toward bringing newer learning concepts for children. The partnership is a great undertaking and very promising for children across the world. Both the educational bodies keep children’s interests at the forefront and provide them with a hands-on learning experience.
The early years of children are the formative years, and whatever they learn during these years stays with them throughout their life. Some of the important elements that this partnership will blossom for children would be promoting language and cognitive development, incursions and excursions to extend on learning, observe children evaluate and record progress, promote health and safety concepts, encourage empathy, cooperation, and respect, encourage and promote positive attitudes towards learning.
Speaking on the partnership with Kanvas Kidz, Alok Jain, the co-founder, and CEO of Moonshot Jr said, “It is vital now more than ever for us to recognize the challenges our children will be facing in tomorrow’s world. We have the glimpse of the future, and the onus is on to start preparing for it.”
“This partnership is going to be very fruitful. It is wonderful to see young children flourish and grow. To allow them to explore and develop into successful human beings is so gratifying. The need of the hour is to encourage our children,” Alok added.
