In an increasingly dynamic and ever-changing world, it is more important than ever for the youth of our nation to be prepared to bring knowledge and skills to solve problems, make sense of information, and gather and evaluate evidence to make decisions. STEM stands for science, engineering, technology, and math. STEM is vital because it permeates every portion of our lives. In the immortal words of Leonardo da Vinci “To develop a complete mind, Study the science of art; Study the art of science; Learn to see; Realize that everything connects to everything else.” Science is, in fact, everywhere.
By introducing STEM to students and giving them opportunities to discover STEM-related concepts, students are enthusiastic about STEM and look forward to the challenging ideas that STEM Science will cover. These challenging courses are characterized by actual situations and can help students learn.
Distance learning in the light of Covid-19
Technology has changed the educational environment for many years. In the past ten years, advances in Internet-based technology have brought unprecedented levels of educational innovation. One of the most significant breakthroughs in innovation is distance learning. As we head into the Fall school, year distance learning has become the option for most schools around the County. However, there are quite a few downfalls to this process. Distance learning is far less challenging than face-to-face learning. It is challenging for teachers to meet the learning style; there is an inability to control the pace, changing the presentation to suit the viewers and the course hurdles’ progress.
However, the biggest challenge has always been a severe delay in communication. One of the basic requirements for effective learning is communicating in both directions between teachers and students.The second problem in distance education is the absence of communication between students. Traditional courses are taught in group settings where students can learn and share information with their fellows. Other issues include technology abuse, quality of education, hidden costs, and administrators’ attitudes.
