STEM Education Influences Career Plans

There’s a growing drumbeat regarding the need for improved STEM education — education in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.  And rightfully so. There are now over 7 billion people inhabiting this Earth — all competing for resources, sometimes creating conflict, and certainly contributing to our collective advancement as a truly global society.

Given the nature of the STEM topics, “hands-on” programs are essential — and there are a lot of good people doing a lot of good work developing new programs — but mainly focusing on high school and middle school teachers and students — with far less attention given to elementary school children.

Since there will always be a need to teach children to read — what if we were able to teach basic science concepts, at an earlier age, in a way that is engaging, taking full advantage of our schools’ standard reading and literacy curriculum?

We know this is possible — so we are taking a different path — and here’s why:

1. We know that early exposure to STEM fields strongly influences career plans.

2. We also know that character development is equally important for members of a global society — character development makes a huge difference in how children’s brains develop — and when children use positive character traits to solve problems, conflict decreases.

3. Finally, we know that when children are in a fun, comfortable environment, they learn more quickly.

So we have created a new category of children’s books — TheEnteleTrons® series, in hard copy and e-book versions — which blend both STEM topics and character education themes in a fun environment. The EnteleTrons® are three, basic sub-atomic particles that come to life and lead young readers through adventures around the universe, teaching wholesome and scientifically-sound material.

We are now poised to expand the series, translate to different languages, and move into newer, multi-media and animation formats to enhance appeal by combining education with entertainment — and we’re excited about the broad and long-term possibilities.
