The ‘E’ in STEM is a building block to become great scientists, mathematicians, and artists
Engineering makes the backbone of STEM education and is used in all aspects of building, designing, and testing.
Engineering is introduced to children infrequently from K-12 despite growing evidence that knowledge and education of engineering leads to improved learning in science and mathematics.
Whether it is their favourite character building a house, designing a windmill, or travelling in spaceships, topics of engineering can be introduced to little minds at an early age.
Young STEM tots often find engineering problems in books that they read. Our engineering kits for kids are inspired by children’s storybooks to introduce the concept of engineering in the most fun and engaging way.
Engineering and Literacy
Literacy in books provides a rich environment for problem solving. The focus is on key steps in the engineering design process: recognizing and framing problems, planning big ideas, testing and optimizing solutions after several trial and error processes. The subject of engineering is considered as the responsibility of educators in college or universities. This misconception has caused very little integration of engineering in elementary, middle school and high school. Engineering is not primarily used by workers in the field of construction or architecture. Engineering concepts are also used to develop knowledge in life science, health science, space and earth science.
