Modern curricula suggest that STEM education in middle school should focus on fundamental concepts treated in an isolated manner. They underestimate the ability and willingness of the typical sixth grader to question, hypothesize, and verify.
Join us for an afternoon of discussion, brainstorming, problem-solving, and a glimpse into what science today is beginning to look like outside of the constraints of your classrooms.
- What is it? This STEMINAR offers students thought-provoking scientific problems in a social and cooperative atmosphere. Students work individually or in groups for as long as they like to solve fun puzzles, problem sets and games, with support provided by a senior student facilitator. Motivation comes from social interaction and collaboration, rather than from any prize, grade, medal, or ranking.
- Who is it for? Middle schoolers (Grades 6 to 8). We welcome all types of students - from those struggling with science to those soaring in achievement.
A nominal fee of ₹200 will be charged on the day of the event.
