How STEAM Kids Can Improve Future Ocean Problems?
To prepare STEAM kids for the 21st century, PIEX education offers a Deep Ocean Holiday Exploration Program for kids aged 6-12!
“The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul” – Robert Wyland.
Happening in April 2021, the Deep Exploration Program is designed to support kids’ creativity, critical thinking, teamwork and community-building skills. This unique program will let your child experience a range of fun and exciting activities. PIEX’s one-of-a-kind STEAM Program includes coding, robotics, origami, science experiments and much more.
Importance of the ocean
Every breath we take and every drop we drink is because of how effective the ocean works. The ocean provides us with huge benefits and acts as our planet’s life support.
Outlined by the National Ocean Service, the ocean:
- Produces over half of the world’s oxygen,
- Regulates our climate by transporting heat from the equator to the poles,
- Provides a sustainable food source of more than just seafood, and
- Allows for transportation and recreational activities, producing significant social and economic benefits.
However, because of climate change, pollution, unsustainable fishing practices and deep-sea mining, the ocean is facing major threats. According to National Geographic, these threats are so widespread that 40% of the ocean is severely affected. Leaving no area untouched. To better protect our oceans, we need to address the root causes of global warming putting our marine life at risk. And that’s where PIEX’s Deep Exploration Holiday Program comes in.
At PIEX, we recognise that children today are our future global leaders. By allowing children to apply their knowledge to real life problems, play-based learning can help develop their social, physical, emotional and cognitive skills. STEAM kids have a problem-solving attitude which is beneficial in solving the threats of global warming on our planet. The benefits of play-based learning are outlined here.
The Deep Exploration Holiday Program uses play-based learning to teach your kids, where they get to dive into the deep in a high-tech submarine and explore the wonders and mysteries of the ocean. In turn, they also become inspired by technology-driven ocean exploration, animal conservation and energy generation. Including solving whether underwater turbines can solve energy problems in the world. They will also find out how deep the ocean really is and explore what is hiding in the most solitary places on earth.
Increase Employability of STEAM Kids
According to the World Economic Forum, 65% of children starting primary school today will likely in future end up working in a job that does not yet exist. To prepare our children for the future, we need to make sure they have more than just good academics, but also develop strong interpersonal skills, be adaptable, self-aware and more empathetic. According to Forbes, STEAM Kids are more teamwork oriented, because of their increased aptitude for creativity & innovation. PIEX recognises these issues and strives to change the ways kids learn so they can better prepare for the future.
PIEX’s unique program uses S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Maths) learning, to make sure today’s children become global citizens and adapt to the challenges of the 21st century. The Deep Ocean Exploration Program will develop your child’s skills so they can make a meaningful contribution to society.
Spots in the Deep Exploration Holiday Program are limited. Enrol your child today this April 2021!
