In a world run by technology, STEM has become an essential part of early learning. Unfortunately, many schools go underfunded and do not have access to the materials needed to give their students that extra head start. That’s why when Alta Vista met Breean Jarvie, a STEM teacher at Briarwood Elementary in Warren, Michigan they knew they needed to help.
To “power up” their study, Alta Vista donated 10 Lego Technic kits to be used by 4th and 5th graders across 2 schools. Lego Technic helps kids learn about science, technology, engineering, and math through circuitry, construction, trial and error, and creativity.
“According to the U. S. Department of Commerce, STEM occupations are growing at 17%, while other occupations are growing at 9.8%. STEM degree holders have a higher income even in non-STEM careers. STEM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators. “
