As a mom and educator, I see the need for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) education. According to the US Department of Commerce, “Over the past 10 years, growth in STEM jobs was three times as fast as growth in non-STEM jobs.”
Two years ago, I started coaching a First Lego League Jr. group in the area. I am proud of my team of First and Second Grade students who created a project that demonstrated a knowledge of gears and motors. Both my daughter and I enjoy every minute of First Lego League. However, we want more opportunities to be involved with STEAM.
As a result of our desire to participate in STEAM classes and the knowledge that there are many other families in the area with a similar interest. I designed STEAM programs. The first class is called "LiittleBits MakerSpace". We use a electronic building blocks to create inventions. The second program is called “Art that Buzzes, Blinks and Bounds”. This program also uses LittleBits to make Art come to life through the use of circuits. I have also created 90 minute Mother/Daughter and Parent/Child STEAM Workshops. I have also just designed a wonderful STEAM program for birthday parties!!!!
