Support the Math & Science CHALLENGE!
An “Early Learning Advantage” Program designed to create Math & Science Superstars
The Math & Science CHALLENGE!
A Science and Information Technology Program modeled on the US Olympic Development Program.
- Step 1: Get young children playing the “game” of math and science;
- Step 2: Build a growth-mindset using Pass-Try Again Challenges and coaching: We can do this, we can solve this problem—if we just work at it!
- Step 3: Create a sustainable STEM culture w/ Math & Science Challenge Tournaments and teacher support networks.
Early Learning Advantage
The CA Math & Science Challenge STEM DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM begins at age 5 with a K-3 robot-based* Introduction to Programming, Problem-solving, and Applied Mathematics. Children don’t know they are doing STEM, they fall in love with their robot, learn its language, and teach it to climb the Project Challenge-Tree.
Robots are powerful Mind Tools but the specific robots we use change as the children get older and technology changes. The key to getting real learning out of a robotics-based STEM program is using the robots in an Active Learning Zone™
