Sumita is the creator of the WIZKIDS CLUB, which was created to help nurture the next generation of creative leaders. The Club has been designed to spark creativity and support scientific learning and features various hands-on activities, adventure books, exciting stories and experiments. Suitable for children aged between 6-12 years of age, the club is aiming to get more and more parents on board to help them stimulate a love for STEAM/STEM.
The Club enables kids to “Imagine. Build.Play”. By signing up for the newsletter, parents can get quality inspiration for new, fun activities, ideas, contests and news that will help their children read, tinker, explore and learn. Those signing up for the newsletter also get a chance to win a copy of the latest book.
STEM/STEAM are acronyms that stand for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art (and) Math. The concept is based on the idea that richer understanding of each field can be gained when each area is combined into a unified learning model based on real-life practical applications rather than taught separately. STEM/STEAM is focused on helping children gain a higher level of engagement with these subjects and making them more relatable to the world around us, helping students to think about them in a holistic manner. The concept has also been designed to address the insufficient number of individual teachers and skills with expert knowledge in these fields. Countries including the USA, UK and Germany have all faced challenges when it comes to adding to their STEAM-skilled talent pools. You can find out more today by using Contact Us page on the site.
