St James students engaged in a STEM edutainment lesson.
Kota Kinabalu: The 2020s and 2021s were a time of lack of classroom learning with teachers. Many parents welcome any augmented education to improve their children’s mastery of STEM knowledge. In this year-end school vacation period, E2 Young Engineers Kota Kinabalu and St James Elementary School have collaborated to organize an exciting summer camp for its students featuring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programs, the skills Malaysia needs to be an advanced, high-income industrialized country. St James Primary School Principal Andrew Chong strongly supports additional education lessons for students and classes will adhere to the Department of Health’s strict SOP.
Why STIM? According to Principal Chong, “The STEM teaching method not only gives freedom to build and create, but also promotes mind-body coordination, recognition, problem-solving, critical thinking, science, math, technology and engineering know-how ”. “STEM improves students’ innovative thinking, problem solving, and thus the acquisition of new knowledge and ideas through project-based learning. STEM is also an important part of Malaysia’s education master plan for 2012-2025, ”Chong said. Young Engineers Kota Kinabalu offers courses and programs originating in the United States and recognized by the Harvard School of Education and the Commission of the European Union. “By using blocks to blend in with the way of teaching, educational learning is no longer boring and ultimately becomes a ‘fun education’ program for participating students.”
“For example, during camp, students will build a motorized flying carousel using blocks and learn the science and technology behind it, such as how centrifugal force acts on flying chairs, Newton’s laws of motion. , etc. “Due to the overwhelming demand and demand, a new summer camp will be held from December 27-30, to allow more students and their parents to understand and experience the way we learn STEM. ” In addition, over the next school year, St James Primary School will be holding similar courses on a regular basis, in order to prepare learners to stay ahead with the latest global trend in STEM learning, in a challenging environment. ‘student-centered learning. ” For more information on STEM courses, contact E2 Young Engineers at 011-31880028. * Follow us on Instagram and join our Telegram and or WhatsApp channel (s) for the latest news you don’t want to miss.
