Since 2007, the team behind this S.T.E.M. initiative thinks that the typical STEM program are missing something. To correct this error, their day camps combine problem-solving with creativity, making S.T.E.A.M.: an acronym standing for science, technology, engineering, art, and math. During these sessions, instructors guide children as they build imaginative projects that combine creativity, art, science and technology, building moving art or individual controlled robots. The art or the bots come to life, thanks to carefully placed motors and circuits. The component interact with infrared sensors to create dynamic, moving sculptures, such as flowers that rustle in the wind or butterflies that tap dance, children enter their creations into art displays, racing, dancing, and battle-bot challenges.
The two mothers who founded North Oaks Country Child Development Center were unable to find a daycare center that felt like a home for their children, so they put their heads together and created one themselves. With a focus on positive reinforcement and praise, their staff helps establish the building blocks for kindergarten and beyond—including lessons that touch on math, science, and art. Whatever the lesson, instructors aim to help kids build the self-assurance and confidence that will allow them to excel in elementary school.
