Hello Swapna, STEM as far as I know if putting all the streams of knowledge together and transferring practical knowledge to a child. How popular is it right now in India and are there any institutions practising this method. How to go about it...as a parent, I'm completely blank about it..pls guide. My child is 3.5 right now and I would certainly need to be aware of what Education system would work best for my child.

Hi Vidyadhar, STEM aims at imparting practical knowledge. The Central govt has initiated the ATAL tinkeing lab to be set up in schools. It will take some time for the program to get implemented everywhere completely. This is definitely is the way forward. Your child is still small. Usually by the age of 8 they get attracted to gadgets and their working. There are private companies hwo have set up Robotics labs and workshops in many cities. You could look out for one and check at what age they would rope in children. Someo f them have lego building programs for younger kids like your child. Meanwhile if we take a look at all theb oards of education, CBSE focuses on MAth and Science and would be the first group pf schools that the government would insist on implementing STEM. Schools following International curriculum like IB/IGCSE follow a project based learning and hands on learning (that the STEM education is focussing) 2018-10-17 15:10:16

CBSE focusses more on science and math and the entrance exams required to get into engg or medical exams. 2018-10-17 15:18:37

ICSE focuses more on humanities and literature 2018-10-17 15:19:02

Also ICSE students would have to take up extra coaching to do the entrance exams 2018-10-17 15:19:34

If you are in transferable jobs then cbse is a better option as every state has enough CBSE schools 2018-10-17 15:20:03

ICSE curriculum is top heavy so it means that from 8th grade there would be plenty to cover. Automaticall the portions of cbse would be there and much more. Yet to face a competitive exam one would need extra coaching just to get familiar with the format 2018-10-17 15:22:03

if I go for ICSE then there is no chance of preparing for competative exams 2018-10-17 15:22:24

Just extra coaching would be required in grade 11 or 12 to get the student familiar with the cbse methodology. Each curriculum has a different approach 2018-10-17 15:23:23

Also scoring full marks is relatively easier in CBSE which gives an edge to the cbse students when applying to colleges. This is the current system. It could change in future 2018-10-17 15:24:24

we planning in kV Hyderabad mam.. what do you think about kv 2018-10-17 15:26:31

KV is controlled by the central govt. There are plenty of extra and co curricular activities that happen which can give a good exposure. KVs differs from place to place. Choose a KV with good reputation. Students come out less stressed from a KV. Though you may want to check the language of teaching. Many schools focus on imparting through HINDI 2018-10-17 15:29:04

if we want to focus on competitive exams life medicine then it's better to go for CBSE right mam 2018-10-17 15:30:36

Do not worry about the school. It is also the right atmosphere created at home, exposure given to children through discussions and books. After school activities can be give to your child. Instill proper study habits. One good thing about KV is they do not minimise sports 2018-10-17 15:30:50

KV has cbse curriculum so it should not be a problem. Definitely it would be easier to face any of the national level competitive exams 2018-10-17 15:31:33

A private school may have better facilities in terms of infrastructure and types of activities. It is wiser to interact with parents of the schools before finalising 2018-10-17 15:35:48

It is best yo udecide after looking at the suggestions ih ave offered. You are your child's best caregivers. Fee structure, safety, quality of teachers, type of methodology are to be looked at. 2018-10-17 15:37:00

Ultimately it is the habits you inculcate, the values you give your child that would matter above all. 2018-10-17 15:38:27

It would be wiser to put somehwere nearby soto reduce travel time. In our country traffic jams can increase the travel time. It will reduce time for play and other activities 2018-10-17 15:46:38

so even a half day school becoems full day if distance is huge. it can also make it tiresome and children will feel fatigued. maybe when your child grows up, from grade 6 or 8 you could consider a school further away 2018-10-17 15:47:48
