It takes a village to raise a child. So why not be apart of that village? There are so many simple ways you can get involved in helping our youth succeed in life.
Education must adapt to create the right learning platform to prepare young people for work in the age of the 4th Industrial Revolution. Learners need to be equipped in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths, + it goes beyond just content. Leaners also need to be coached and mentored to become confident, generous, resilient and loving members of our global society. We need young people who don’t just get good Maths marks, but who use their education to build a more inclusive and sustainable world.
We currently run two programs within the STEAM+ project. The first is a Maths & Science program, and the second a Robotics program.
Maths & Science
We tutor Grade 8, 9 and 10 and 11’s in Mathematics at Thandokhulu High School in Mowbray. Maths & Science is the foundation of most degrees and careers in the areas of STEAM. Our goal is to help learners build confidence, learn to problem-solve and resource them to succeed.
The second program, under the STEAM+ project, is a Robotics program that we are running with a group of Grade 7 students at Devon Primary in Stellenbosch. We use the Educational Lego Sets to introduce the foundational concepts of robotics. They are simple and can be facilitated by anyone. Getting exposure to programming and robotics from a young age will really set these learners up for the future of work, and inspire them with the possibilities that technology brings.
Our programs are designed to not only help young people succeed in their education, but also to succeed in life. This is the PLUS. All of our programs are founded on a deep desire to inspire young people to become confident, generous, resilient and loving members of our global society. This is done on an ongoing basis relationally through our tutors, as well as through some intentional coaching sessions, outings, events and camps.
