All children need experiences that call upon their heads, hearts, and hands. Traditional rhetoric says that girls generally have more difficulty acquiring spatial thinking and reasoning skills than boys, but only due to the type of play they engage in as children. Since many STEAM fields rely heavily on spatial skills especially in advanced studies, this puts young women at a significant disadvantage compared to their male peers, so they say.
Regardless whether this line of thought holds water, Professor Qwbli’s believes GIRLS RULE and believe exposure at a young age to activities that promote spatial thinking & reasoning skills can alleviate this perceived or real imbalance and attract more girls to STEAM studies. That is why we created added Professor Qwbli’s Maker’s Lab to our Beautifully Brilliant Series.
This hands-on, interdisciplinary approach to teaching & learning provides a meaningful context to develop confidence, creativity and interest in science, technology, engineering, math and art by providing a safe space to make, build, tinker and create.
