Understanding More about STEM Subjects

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. These four subjects can open the door to many excellent career opportunities for your child, because a variety of key industries rely on individuals with STEM-based qualifications. There are also many important life skills to be learnt through STEM subjects, such as problem solving, teamwork, critical thinking and independence.

To highlight the many benefits of studying STEM subjects at school, Surbiton High have put together the following information for parents…

For young children, there’s no better time to start exploring STEM subjects than at school. It is important for children to understand the connections between each of the STEM subjects, as well as their importance in the real world. Most schools integrate STEM subjects into their curriculum, in order to help young people develop an interest in these areas as early as possible. 

Parents can encourage their children to explore STEM subjects in many ways. A great place to start is by helping to point out STEM learning opportunities in the world around them. Let them explore nature and teach them about the different types of trees and insects. Stimulate their curiosity by allowing them to conduct safe experiments at home, and play games and puzzles together to help develop their problem solving skills. Even cooking can help a child to develop their maths skills by calculating quantities and measurements. 

There are many fun and interactive activities you can do at home to explore STEM subjects and the chances are you probably do already without even realising it!

If you would like more information about STEM subjects and how you can help your child to study them, you can speak to your child’s teachers. They will be able to give you an overview of the curriculum and give you advice on how to support your child’s learning.
