STREAM based education, with its focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, gained prominence all over the world during the cold war era. It was so because, during that period, more skilled individuals were needed to bring the nations to the forefront of economic, technological, and scientific innovations.
Nonetheless, it has been over seventy years since the cold war, and we continue to discuss the need for it! The importance and requirement of STREAM based learning for related job prospects has augmented like never before, owing to the phenomenal and consistent advancements in modern technology. As a matter of fact, thousands of tech jobs go unfilled because of the lack of experts in the field.
At Vidsan Charterhouse, a top-ranking school in Delhi NCR, we integrate STREAM based learning to enhance the career graph of our students and positively impacts their learning abilities and cognitive development in multiple ways.
STREAM education in early childhood learning
When STEM learning is introduced in early childhood, it stays with the individual for life and aids him/her in every aspect of academic as well as co-curricular development. As famously remarked by Indra Nooyi, ex-CEO of Pepsi Co., “If you stay with the STEM (STREAM) disciplines, you can learn pretty much all of the subjects as you move along in life.”
Impact of STREAM on children’s social skills
At Vidsan Charterhouse, we believe that as mentors of the young minds, it is our responsibility to empower them to think critically, explore passionately, and analyse carefully – these traits are intrinsically related to STREAM based learning and promote social skills of children.
VCH endows students and ensures that each of our budding geniuses grows up to be socially active, responsible, enlightened citizens of tomorrow.
STREAM opens up a range of opportunities
We understand that all the skills that children learn, and the knowledge that we impart comes down to one thing – career prospects and opportunities to avail. STREAM based education is the winner in both aspects; it aids young minds to bag high profile tech jobs and enables them to fare well in the other fields that they choose.
Vidsan Charterhouse is noted as a renowned international school in Delhi NCR, for its modern pedagogy and sustaining a learning ecosystem that facilitates 21st-century skills.
We arrange a host of STREAM programs under our Makers’ Space initiative where pupils are introduced to the latest technologies like Robotics, Game Development, Aeromodelling, 3D Printing, Animation Graphics; this fosters creative thinking skills and a passion for learning among our students. Lessons are made fun and are embedded as a part of the daily activities at school.
At VCH, we are committed to awakening a scientific fervour in our young scholars, and STREAM is one of our many ways through which we have been successful in achieving that.
