Your Kindergarten and/or Grade 1 student is participating in TSC’s STEM-based IDEA program. Our IDEA teachers will be joining your student's teacher monthly to present hands-on lessons created to challenge and enrich our students. Each lesson will utilize the Engineering Design Process which teaches kids how to solve problems systematically: creating engineering skills, optimism, and resilience. Students will quickly learn that when engineers solve a problem, they try many ideas before finding the best solution, and they are constantly working to improve that solution. We know that parents are our students’ first and best teachers, so after each IDEA lesson, your student will bring home the activity completed in class and the whole family can work together, using the engineering design process, to redesign and improve the design when possible, and enjoy time together.
