Oct 2017 Newsletter.

Welcome to our October Newsletter. Here are some recent k-9 education articles that inspired us, as well as a couple of local STEAM events that your kids might enjoy.

McKinsey used machine learning to discover the best way to teach science.
Which way do kids learn better — teacher-directed or inquiry-based? The recent McKinsey report sheds some new lights on it based on the data from half a million students across 72 countries.

The founder of Khan Academy built the ultimate school for kids to work and play together — take a look inside
Khan is leading the charge on another learning revolution: flexible learning spaces. The approach takes a hard left turn from regular schooling, and it could pave the way for schools of the future.

May 2018 Newsletter

In our classes and interactions with kids, we have always been impressed by their curiosity and eagerness to learn. Starting this month, we are including fun articles for your kids (and you :)) to learn about the STEM behind the scene in real life. Many of these articles will be related to what we teach as well. The two featured this month are “The Science of Curling” and “Towards More Peaceful Coexistence with Sharks (using AI)”.

The Science of Curling

During the Winter Olympics this year, did your children watch curling and ask questions like what makes the curling ice special or why those guys sweep in front of the stones? This article talks about the science behinds curling and explains these questions. Hope your little ones like it too.

Toward a More Peaceful (and High-Tech) Coexistence With Sharks

Many kids love sea animals, and sharks are one of their favorites. As we know, sharks are dangerous and they can hurt people and other animals. In Australia, artificial intelligence techniques are used to build shark surveillance systems that automatically identify sharks in the water. Sounds very cool, right? Check out this article to learn more.

Why Kids Need To Learn How To Forgive

Last Wednesday night, my daughter suddenly started crying badly. Finally, we found out that her friend switched a stone with her during their playdate but she didn’t want to. These little things may feel small, but they are great opportunities for kids to learn how to deal with bigger challenges in life and in this case, how to forgive. In fact, studies have shown that children who learn how to forgive also gain an edge academically.
