You will often see STEM Sports® advocating and providing at-home learning opportunities. We do this because there are real-time benefits to expanding education outside of the classroom and into the home.
- Children have the opportunity to learn at their own pace
Often, in classroom settings, children all have to move at the same pace. This can be difficult because comprehension speeds are not cookie cutter and some kids require more 1-on-1 time to excel. In an at-home setting, children have the flexibility to learn at THEIR pace and spend time thinking deeply.
- It caters to all learning styles
Learning styles differ from child to child. People can learn through seeing, doing, hearing, or all three! In an at-home learning environment, children can learn based on their preferred methods. This leads to higher retention and comprehension!
- Comfortability in the learning environment
Comfortability has benefits in all areas. In education, it gives children the confidence to take risks and spend time thinking critically. Learning at home in an environment where children are comfortable, can allow your child to expand their knowledge in a more focused manner. This is especially beneficial with STEM, an already intimidating subject.
