Sprouting S.T.E.Ms is an experiential educational space for children to learn how to altruistically create. I want my students to know the world better, know themselves better and see the needs of others. I want my students to think altruistically to change for the generations to come. I encourage independent thinking, creativity and autonomy over their learning. I want my students to take risks and know that they are in a safe place to do so. I want them to do what humans do best, learn.
In my program i aim to optimize the use of the human brain acknowledging the fact that the human brain as the capacity to make infinite connections. I achieve this in students through brain-based learning. Teaching content evolves to orchestrating deep, meaningfully experiences. These experiences emotionally attach students to the content thus increasing the likelihood that the information will be retained. My students are engaged in talking, listening, reading, viewing, building, creating, playing and adding value to their work.
