Launching home educated students to their future careers through Christian S.T.E.M. learning.
Edison Kids S.T.E.M. Fair
In our current work environment, S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) are fundamental skills required by employers. We live in a world where scientific and technological advancements expand daily. Todays students will enter a workplace with technologies that have still to be invented. Most will be working in jobs and sectors that have yet to be created and invented. With this expansion it is our responsibility to equip this generation with the skill set they will need; a skill set greater than any other generation. These skills can only be developed through a solid foundation in understanding basic science and technology, as well as decision making, problem solving and the ability to be innovative.
Science Fairs create an amazing opportunity to students to learn these vital skills. From not only learning what the Scientific Method and Engineering Design Process are, to conducting hands-on investigation and innovation, to working through a project from question to conclusion. The emphasis is on ‘doing’ not just ‘learning’.
In late Spring 2019, Edison Kids will be holding a Science Fair and we are inviting all Edison Kids Members to participate.
We will offer workshops throughout the year to help inspire students and instruct them on the Scientific Method and Engineering Design Process. These workshops will work through mini Science Fair Projects to instruct students in the practice of a Science Fair Project. However, participants are expected to conduct most of the work, themselves, at home. This is a great family project and we will happily accept team entrances. Parents are encouraged to offer emotional support and reminders, but to allow the students to do the projects by themselves.
We will add blog posts throughout the year with resources and information to help in your endeavor. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to call or email with any questions.

S.T.E.M. Fair Prep Workshops
In this workshop, we will explore the field of Chemistry, by looking at the different States Of Matter. We will conduct various experiments while working through the scientific method. The workshop is for all ages as it will cover the basic concepts that are the foundation of chemistry.
In this workshop, we will explore the field of Biology, by looking at Biodomes, a self-sufficient ecosystem. They will explore, not only ecosystems, but also how plants grow and what they need to thrive. Each student will make their own personal biodome to monitor progress at home.
