Though education is an important part of a child’s growth and development and families strive every day to ensure they are helping promote learning for their children, at Power And Grace Preparatory Academy (PGPA), we use a specific focus of education referred to as S.T.E.A.M learning.
S.T.E.A.M learning is very important because these five disciplines are used in everyday activities. They promote problem-solving skills along with creative and analytical thinking. Many of the jobs that affect our economy include S.T.E.A.M subjects.
Accounting, architecture, medical research, and environmental studies all involve science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, S.T.E.A.M occupations have grown in the last ten years three times faster than non-S.T.E.A.M occupations and S.T.E.A.M occupations are expected to grow by 10% from now until 2020. Non-S.T.E.A.M occupations only grow at a national average of 5-8%.
For this reason, among others, it is never too early to begin introducing S.T.E.A.M learning to your child. Each discipline of S.T.E.A.M helps your child grow and navigate through everyday challenges.
