“The traditional model is that the teacher imparts knowledge to the children, but if there aren’t enough teachers with the knowledge, why not let the kids teach themselves? Give them a basis to start with and let them try stuff out. There’s no getting stuck––only creativity in looking for the best path forward. The new generation is incredibly resourceful in finding information, and we as STEM facilitators need to aim in supporting them in whatever situation they encounter. Coding, designing, creating, building, discovering and troubleshooting are all parts of what it means to be in a STEM class. STEM isn’t about showing them how to do something, but empowering them with the right tools to create and discover it on their own.”
