Event description

Description

The Petroleum Museum is excited to announce a new program called STEAM Sprouts that will engage pre-school children ages 4-5 in STEAM-based curriculum and challenges. STEAM Sprouts will start this June with Mini Camps at the Museum on June 6-7 and 13-14 from 9:30 am to 11:00 am. Sessions will continue into the 2018-2019 school year. STEAM Sprouts is generously sponsored by Occidental Petroleum.

STEAM Sprouts in Nature will feature hands-on investigations into the natural world and how it relates to STEM. Students will be engineering a Treehouse, going on nature walks, and creative projects using natural materials. This camp is on June 6 & 7 from 9:30 am to 11:00 am.

The early childhood years, birth to age 5, have long been accepted as the most critical point in neurological or brain development. Studies by the National Science Teachers Association show that young children learn through active exploration—and the drive to observe, interact, discover, and explore is inherent in their development. It is during these years that many in the education community believe that evidenced-based STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) curricula should begin, setting children on a path to develop a love of scientific inquiry. In addition to developing an interest and knowledge base for STEAM and enhanced inquiry skills, experts say that science instruction improves abilities in subjects outside of STEAM, including literacy, language-learning, math, and critical thinking.
