Spark your imagination, fuel your future
The future is full of innovations – from virtual reality to robots, drones and driverless cars.
As automation becomes more commonplace and the impact of technology continues to grow, the jobs of the future will require advanced literacy in STEM skills. These subjects teach students how to think critically, ask questions and discover innovative solutions. Educating in STEM subjects will prepare them for life, regardless of the professions they choose.
The success of our future generations will depend heavily on their understanding of scientific methods, numeracy and digital literacy as well as complementary capabilities such as critical thinking, problem-solving, engineering design process, collaboration, creativity and communication. Often referred to as 21st century skills, these capabilities are highly valued in a world that is increasingly complex, competitive, and interconnected.
Therefore, we need to advocate and foster learning environments that resemble the processes of open-ended problem-solving and scientific practice. By integrating inquiry-based experiences with real tools, technologies and resources, TinkerTorium will spark young imaginations to drive experimentation, learning and discovery.
