STEM toys seem to be the rage for a lot of parents. They seem like everything you would want to spend your money on. Not only do they keep your kids entertained, but they also incorporate science, technology, engineering, and math into their play.
It can’t get better than this, can it?
Bit by Bit we clean our oceans, and Bit by Bit we STEM innovators make cleaning oceans easier, as well as preventing the further pollution of water and our planet. Informing ourselves as well as our young students of the importance in maintaining our planet clean makes a WORLD of a difference. The Ocean Cleanup Non-Profit Organization is one of many working creations driven to help clean up trash in the Great Pacific.
Video games seem to be the blame for many of kids’ screen addictions. We often scold our kids for playing too many video games. “Go outside and play,” “That's enough screen time,” are phrases used too often in this 21st century, but have we actually thought about the benefits that video games can give children?
Summer means fun-in-the-sun and days filled with not much to do, but summer is actually the perfect time for learning! Just because there's no school in session doesn't mean that learning shouldn't be happening; in fact, without formal assignments, it's the perfect time for creativity and imaginative learning. Parents can combat the notorious "summer slide" by encouraging your student to devote a little bit of time each day to keeping up their skills they learned during the school year.
STEM based careers are going to be among the highest paid jobs of the future! As well paid, or even better paid in some cases, as Doctors, Lawyers, and Lobbyists. Stop and think about that! An individual in the future in a STEM field could be among the most highly paid. We may not have even though of what the STEM careers of the future will be!
8Bit Education has been working very diligently to expand the number of locations and our partnerships around the DFW area. As a result of these efforts, we are excited to announce that we will now be holding summer camps at 7 locations around the DFW area.
You read that right: 8Bit Education now has 7 locations!
In Fall 2011, 8Bit Education was founded on the simple goal of getting kids excited about digital media and technology. With just 16 donated computers, 6 interactive & educational courses, support from loved ones, and, of course, hard work & dedication, I started a path that I have not regretted.
