Science Club / STEM Club or Maker Space?
It is a place where students can learn to use material, tools, design and create a prototype using their hands-on skills and scientific knowledge. It encourages students to explore, tinker and build while understanding the integration of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) in everyday life.
Pakistan Science Club has initiated the setup of Maker Space / Tinker lab in schools and colleges realizing the need to establish a centre to develop and nourish the technical and hands-on 21st Century skill of the students. As in our educational system, science is limited to books and the traditional labs are not sufficient to gratify the interest and curiosity of students in science. The idea is to provide a platform where all types of basic tools, instruments and technical aid will be provided to the students to work on their ideas, to develop the practical approach, design prototypes using engineering principles, theories, calculations and techniques.
The purpose of the Club/maker space is to inculcate the interest, ingenuity and critical thinking in young minds and to develop their hands-on and computational skills. Students will be facilitated to work with basic tools and equipment to comprehend the fundamental concept of STEM (Science, Engineering, Technology and Math) and its implementation to solve real-life problems and challenges.
Before setting up of the Makerspace / Tinker lab see requirement Learning Environment
We design the curriculum of STEM club which is consist of 3 parts
- Essential skills stage consist of 7 sessions (Length, Time, Electric Current, Temperature, Luminous Intensity, Mass, Amount of Substance)
- Secondary stage: Inventor
