According to neurologist (and educator) Judy Willis, “The highest-level executive thinking, making of connections, and ‘aha’ moments are more likely to occur in an atmosphere of ‘exuberant discovery,’ where students of all ages retain that kindergarten enthusiasm of embracing each day with the joy of learning.”
When our brains respond to laughter, our increased volume in breathing causes endorphins, adrenaline, and dopamine to be released. As a result, students are more alert and the information that’s being presented to them is attached to their memories as a positive emotional event.
One of our favorite things about STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education is that these areas display the handiwork of our Creator. It’s exciting to see the many “aha” moments that happen when campers relate God’s creativity to the world around them. We get an adrenaline rush when we see them apply the principles they’ve learned!
New and returning campers alike will be challenged during this year’s camps where we’ll apply the principles of STEM in the area of Space Exploration. We can’t wait to see the individual and collective problem-solving that’ll happen this year as we venture out of this world!
