North Texas STEM Academy is a micro-school. A STEM-based educational program for children of all abilities, ages 4 to 10yrs old.
This is Education reinvented!
I wanted to create an environment to encourage children to think and wonder about the world around them. Our classroom environment was created to inspire learning within STEM concept, and creative thinking. We facilitate the learning environment with a flexible curriculum that allows children input in what they learn and how they will learn, based on each child’s interests and needs.
Each activity is centered around your child’s interactions with others and their own investigations. In this way, children form an understanding of themselves and their place in the world. A smaller class size , individual education plans creates an environment that will inspire your child’s natural tendency to discover through play, as well as to explore, express, invent, and innovate.
What is a Micro - School?
is the reinvention of the one-room school house, where class size is typically smaller than that in most schools (15 students or less in a classroom) and there are mixed-age level groupings. Micro-schooling is seen as being in between homeschooling and private schooling and is designed to offer a full-year of education.
STEM plays vital role in our everyday lives. Little Elm STE(A)M wants to introduce those roles to our children. Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics—STEM.....STEM education—are vital to our future and for the future of our children. STEM +Art+ Language and elements of Cooking is everywhere; it shapes our everyday life.
What is STEM?
“STEM” stands for science, technology, engineering and math. STEM can refer to the subjects individually or one or more working together, but can also mean a way of doing things that includes solving problems, asking questions, and exploring the world around us. For example, children learn about the concept of technology when they’re exploring tools or simple machines and investigating how they work. These can be items they use every day like a pair of scissors, or things they might see like the wheels of a car as they walk outside. For young children, we focus on STEM through exploration, play, and building curiosity about the natural world and the way things work. STEM learning is important for everyone and can happen anytime, anywhere. The real-life skills that people develop when learning STEM help make everyone better problem-solvers and learners.
