What is common between really successful people cutting across the domains and professions is the learning takes a different route. A route that each of your kids can go through at CONCEPTREE’s STEM Sessions covering the three important stages of learning leading to excellence…

CONCEPTREE's E-E-E Approach

STEM sessions are designed around a simple principle that without practical application, students often fail to comprehend the depths of the concepts and miss out on realm excellence.

What is CONCEPTREE’s STEM Session All About

A standard session would run for a duration of about 2 hours with break in between where the instructor would pick up relevant ideas in specific subjects Science/Technology/ Engineering/ Mathematics. While some of the ideas that can intrigue creative thinking in students often get covered in the regular school curriculum, students would not get adequate opportunities to explore depths of it. In the current age where a student often loses interest during lecture-style teaching, STEM Sessions promote an atmosphere of attention and participation there by making the learning ideas interesting, exciting and fun. As you well know, telling is not teaching and listening is not learning. STEM Session would be able to give a glimpse of excellence path taken by successful people in these areas.

Standard STEM Session Plan

STEM session is structured in most scientifically designed E-E-E approach aimed at bringing life into learning style of students. Here is the overview of session approach for a session…

Experience
Experience part of the session is around 30 minutes where a specific thought/ topics relevant to STEM would be brainstormed conceptually through interactive discussions and video presentations/demonstrations. This process is useful for generating creative thoughts and ideas relevant to the topic. Most scientifically proven methods of-Structured and unstructured as well as Reverse or negative thinking are explored in this part of the session. Instructors would use questions that stimulate response, discussion, and a hands-on experience.
At the end of the session, students are given a problem or a question, which the students can come up with practical solution (MIT Project-X Type) in pairs or group

Explore
This session would be around 45 minutes to 1 hour. Students are encouraged to think, pair, and share. Each pair or students is given sufficient time to form a conclusion, and permit each participant to define the conclusion in his or her personal voice.
The session might involve a case study format, but the process is not so rigid as a full case study training session.
The focus is on learning how to solve real problems that involve real people—preparing your students for life beyond your classroom. Provide small groups of students with details from actual incidents and then ask them to develop a workable solution.
Team-idea mapping, Group passing and Individual brainstorming are being promoted in this part of the session.

Excel
For the remainder of the session, participants come together and focus on a single topic. Within each group, every student contributes thoughts and ideas. Encourage discussion and collaboration among the students within each group; everyone should learn from one another’s input and experiences. The idea is to promote excellence among students by encouraging more practical/ practically relevant solutions.

Q&A Session

On the conclusion of every STEM session, students can interact with instructors through Q&A session. Students can also give their questions on cards which will be answered later by instructors and shared using mail.
