When you think of bright minds and technology what do you think? Are you thinking about those students who are considered “brilliant”? Or perhaps those who excel academically? Did you stop to consider that when we say “Bright Minds” we mean ALL kids, especially those with varying abilities!
STEM education programs can play a critical role to help keep kids engaged in learning. Most students succeed with an education that involves a hands-on experience and opportunities for problem-solving. This is especially true for kids with exceptional needs. Many students with exceptional needs tend to be more visual or kinesthetic learners who benefit from step-by-step instructions, smaller class sizes and differentiated instruction.
By believing in the abilities of all “Bright Minds” means believing that STEM learning is possible, regardless of a child’s disability. Providing these students with an opportunity to experience STEM based learning means preparing them for a successful future.
