It may be hard to believe, but September School Holidays are nearly here! If you are at a loss wondering how you are going to fill in the next few weeks, then we have the solution.
STEM Punks popular online classes are back. Due to their successful one-week STEM Camp last holidays, this time there’s TWO weeks of online classes!
STEM, if you don't already know, stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. So your kids will be learning, even while on holidays. But in such a fun and interactive way, that trust us, they won't even notice. It is perfect if you have to keep them busy while inside the house. Especially if you are working from home.
Kids will learn new STEM skills and solve real world problems. The online school holiday classes have been developed by teachers, leading innovators, and industry professionals to enable a mindset of innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship.
The key benefits to STEM Punks are:
The delivery model is interactive with production quality content and a structured learning process designed by award winning teachers
Kids will get live interaction with qualified teachers.
All content aligned with the Australian Curriculum with a Certificate of Completion which lists learning outcomes.
Classes are linked with leading industry and research ambassadors. For example, Dr Michaela Musilova - STEM Punks Advisory Board Member & Director of the MoonBase in Hawaii.
Does this sound exactly what you have been looking for? Here is the schedule for the school holidays!
Daily online classes are delivered by a team of leading STEM Educators. Live classes are recorded and can be viewed for 7 days after the class has finished.
