Learning Zone soon will be opening one of the best STEM/STEAM Preschools Gallatin TN parents have been waiting for anxiously. The new Gallatin location will build on the successes of the Learning Zone STEM/STEAM preschools in Murfreesboro and Nashville.
What is STEM/STEAM Learning?
Originally, educators called this learning philosophy STEM – an acronym for:
The acronym STEAM adds an “A” for the Arts. STEM/STEAM learning incorporates activities in the five disciplines. And it encourages knowledge of everyday problem solving and critical thinking. It’s NOT about studying these disciplines individually. In short, it’s about the integration of these disciplines to solve problems with hands-on activities.
Why is STEM/STEAM Learning Important?
The U.S. Department of Education has said fluency in STEM/STEAM fields is essential. It will give our Nation “the ability to understand and solve some of the complex challenges of today and tomorrow.” As a result the USDE published the STEM Education Strategic Plan in 2018. The plan urgently calls for nationwide collaboration with learners, educators, communities, and employers. It charts a course for the Nation’s success.
