STEM in practice
The scientific fields of STEM and their application in CityLab are:
Definition: Science is the knowledge and the systematic effort to acquire it through observation and experimentation in combination with logic and reasoning.
Application: Hypothesis and Proof, Experimental design, Observation, Prediction, Data collection and Interpretation, Time and speed distance measurements, Algorithms and Programming
Definition: Technology is the collection of techniques, skills, methods and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the achievement of goals, such as scientific research. The technology can be integrated into machines that can operate without detailed knowledge of their operation.
Application: Principles of assembly and construction of machines, Gears, Motion, Rotation, Forces, Motion sensors of light and color sound.
Definition: Engineering is the art and profession that discipline the scientific theory for the design, development and analysis of technological solutions. The goals of Engineering are the invention, innovation, design, construction, maintenance, research and improvement of structures, machines, tools, systems, components, materials, but also processes, functions and entire organizations in general.
Application: List of creative ideas, justification with data, analysis, correction, improvement, design, specifications, project management, writing instructions, research, preparation for presentation.
Definition: The systematic study and knowledge of numbers, structures, our space and how they change and are interdependent.
Application: The application of arithmetic, algebra and geometry in practice is attempted, with specific constructions that sometimes require accuracy, sometimes abstract and sometimes quantitative reasoning: Random study, use of variables and functions, statistical data analysis.
The best part is that our kids at CityLab are driven to discover all of this with each other, with a plan, system, fun, pedagogical standards and technocratic procedures based on best international scientific and educational practices !!!
