Are Robots Taking Our Jobs

robot robotic best stem classes denver

 

 Robots are expected to create 15 million new jobs in the US over the next 10 years, as a direct result of automation and AI, the equivalent to 10% of the workforce. The downside: robots will also kill 25 million jobs over the same period. AI and automation is an area undergoing a seismic shift, just like computers did in the 1980s and plastics did 30 years before that.

Our Why

CodingForKids

 

Parents and students often ask us why we do what we do. I always appreciate someone’s curiosity, and in this case, it’s a welcomed opportunity to not only explain ‘our why’ but to help inform about the rather dire STEM education gap that needs to be filled.

Understanding ‘our why’ begins by understanding that literally everything we do in our lives requires the use of some sort of technology…it is all around us…from the timing of the traffic lights, the air pressure sensor on my car, to my home scale that texts me if my weight fluctuates outside of pre-defined parameters…tech is all around us.

I’m super excited to announce that we were just notified by Colorado Parent Magazine that not only was Silicon STEM Academy recognized as the #1 Academic Enrichment Provider in the state, but we also won the #1 Summer STEM Camp category too!! So proud of our team, students and families who have supported us over the years. Thanks to all.

We’ll plan on a more formal announcement towards the official end of the summer or fall.

PREVENTING SUMMER LEARNING LOSS WITH STEM SUMMER CAMPS DENVER

STEM Summer Camps Denver keep kids learning

As summer approaches, a very real concern among parents and educators is how best to avoid “summer brain drain”— the loss of all the learning that took place during the school year. Every student is at risk of summer learning loss, which is why the first 6 weeks of the school year are routinely used to re-learn old material, and it can take up to 2 months for a student’s brain development to get back on track. In fact, by the end of the 6th grade, students who experience summer learning loss over the years are an average of 2 years behind their peers who keep their skills sharp during summer months.

Whether your student loves to read, play sports or build robots, the summer provides a perfect opportunity to develop their passions, expose them to new interests and to actually get them ahead. One of the best ways to avoid the summer doldrums is to enroll your child in summer STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) camps. Our STEM Summer Day Camps keep their brains active while they are having lots of fun in activities like programming, robotics, exploring circuitry and sensors, Minecraft modding, editing a video highlights reel, touching up photos, creating 3D designs and more! It’s all about having fun WHILE they learn!

REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR DENVER SUMMER DAY CAMPS AT SILICON STEM ACADEMY.

It’s a Bomb!

Ahmed Mohamed got in big trouble for bringing a homemade clock to school. Ignorance is all around us on this one! While the teacher did the right thing to notify the authorities in the spirit of protecting our kids, the reality is that the confusion between a clock and a bomb is truly symbolic of our STEM challenge. We are out of time!

BTW – I’m collaborating with my good friend Bob Smith to build a larger scale GPS Arduino-based clock to have on display in the Makers Lab.
