The skills of creativity, inquiry, observation, problem-solving, and discerning fact from opinion are fostered through S.T.E.M. education and are vital to the development of future generations of innovators, problem-solvers, and decision makers. When a child intuitively explores their world, they are forming neurological connections that form the basis for how they will navigate and survive in the world. This program provides opportunities to “exercise” the brain with a more profound exploration of S.T.E.M.
There are so many ways that STEM education can help kids grow their minds and become even better learners in the world. From teamwork to resilience, STEM can help all kinds of students learn valuable skills and develop their growing minds.
UCMAS (Universal Concept of Mental Arithmetic System) is a child development program based on Visual Arithmetic and Abacus that boosts brainpower in children.
The UCMAS mental math program uses Abacus as a tool and arithmetic as the base to help children develop their brain capabilities. During the practice, children are trained to use both hands, stimulating both sides of the brain. It helps enhance children's cognitive skills such as attention, memory, perception, etc., and solidifies their mental math calculation skills. In a research titled ‘Representing exact number visually using mental abacus’, conducted by David Barner, a Harvard University Student, it was found that children trained in Abacus have much higher IQ non-Abacus trained children.
