This item supports a STEM and a STEAM based curriculum. It encourages and develops the critical thinking, problem solving and innovative ideas that are important in STEM and STEAM based projects. This curriculum integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Art, and the resources need to be able to support these different fields as one integrated pedagogy. This is an open-ended and multi-layered resource which can be adapted to different skills and knowledge levels, and supports children to become confident and adaptable learners.
Children often have a wonderful sense of curiosity and inquisitiveness that naturally leads them into exploring and learning. When this is fostered in children they are able to develop a love of learning that will stay with them throughout their lives. Strawbees straws are a wonderful tool to add to your STEM and STEAM activities and experiences!
