What excites me most about Challenge Island® is watching the kids faces light up when what they built together as a STEAM TEAM finally works! Challenge Island® is about more than just STEM, it’s about learning to work together to solve a challenge. With 10+ years of supporting industrial automation through data and analytics I know how essential these skills are. I remember how excited I was when I found out about Challenge Island® and that it was about teaching resilience through a STEAM lens with hands-on activities.
I love how Challenge Island® harnesses the power of reflection in each session. The best learning comes not only from doing but from reflecting on what went well and what didn’t…. then finding ways to improve! I can’t wait to bring Challenge Island to students near you!
