Curt and Chris interview Tara Laidlaw this week about adding STEM into camping. Tara has immense knowledge of STEM learning and a crazy amount of great advice for camps looking to do this. This week’s episode is a great listen for not only the “What-to-dos” or the “How-to-dos”, but also the “Why-you-shoulds”!
Tara also shares with us her opinion on S.T.E.M. vs S.T.E.A.M. and it’s better than the opinions Chris and Curt shared a few episodes ago. Her thought is that it should be S.T.E.A.M. but that the “arts” part should be as a communication tool to share the findings, importance, or processes of a science or engineering project (tech and math included).
