Too Early

Too Early

Our daughters are natural-born scientists, with plenty of questions about the world, how it works and why it works that way. But as they grow older, they’re faced with a set of challenges and their curiosity usually takes a backseat. We’ve embraced analytical reasoning and done our bit of research to find ways for you to encourage your daughter’s love for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). After all, it’s never too early to promote the valuable skill of understanding our world a little better.

And into every day life by fostering your daughter’s love of learning and exploration through daily activities like banking, cooking and even music. Show her that by making quick calculations and estimates she can also make the most of her pocket money. Or research some edible science experiments and cook up a storm in the comfort of your own kitchen. Make music and math more interesting by teaching her all about counting notes, rhythm and scales.

Princess parties and tea parties are great but science parties are great too! Most times, our daughters don’t even know the possibilities of STEM so it’s up to you to show them. With science parties becoming more available, it might be a good idea to throw a Rock-it Science Party to introduce your daughter and her friends to the wonders of science. www.rockitscienceparties.com

With channels like Discovery Kids and shows like Bill Nye the Science Guy and Mythbusters, you can easily find exciting and captivating content to watch with your daughter. During quality moments like these, you can show her that you’re just as interested in science and the way the world works. She will surely share your enthusiasm and cherish these times together forever. Who knows, she can be the one making the next scientific breakthrough!

All said and done, science is one of the best ways to show your daughter that every experiment comes with its own set of obstacles, challenges and failures. The important thing is to use failure as an opportunity to learn and improve before moving on. Following one’s passion – any passion, especially STEM - requires resilience and courage; that’s why it’s important that you help her understand and navigate the challenges and setbacks along with the triumphs as early as possible so she can grow up knowing that she’s got what it takes to take on anything!
