FULL STEAM FORWARD'S MISSION: To promote equity in education by engaging young girls from under-resourced minority populations in STEAM-based programs designed to develop a sustained passion for the sciences.
Full STEAM Forward incorporates a pedagogy designed to integrate Creative Intelligence into learning.
•The FSF program is an after school, weekend and holiday program for 3rd and 4th grade self-identified girls from underserved geographies.
•The FSF program was adapted from BookendsTM, a comprehensive off-line curriculum developed by American educators for Chinese children aged 3-9
•BookendsTM is an academic program designed to nurture Creative Intelligence—by creating the neural pathways necessary to connect the dots among distinct subjects to solve multi-faceted problems.
oReduces rote learning—especially in math and science.
oEncourages creativity, innovation, critical thinking and teamwork—all necessary skills for the next generation workplace.
•With the recent relocation of a BookendsTM Founder from Shanghai to NYC, we were able to quickly adapt the BookendsTM STEAM curriculum into an on-line format positioned for the NFP market.
