Big Bang Academy帶領小孩投入STEM活學世界

原文刊於 Champimom - Premium Pregnancy & Parenting Education Platform

兩位畢業於劍橋大學的BigBangAcademy年輕創辦人——Sarah & Nixon,如何利用學院知識,讓你和小朋友一起投入STEM活學世界?

爆發你的好奇大世界!

Sarah與Nixon是在劍橋大學相識的,Sarah主修工程學,Nixon主修生物學,他們對科學的熱情聯繫二人走在一起,亦是創辦Big Bang Academy的最大契機。

他們認為科學是讓人保持對世界的好奇心,他們也想為香港的小朋友引進及營造這樣的學習環境,於是成立Big Bang Academy,希望讓小朋友在課堂外再次感受科學的趣味。「Big Bang」這個名字也是代表著宇宙的起源,萬事萬物中都有科學的存在,亦希望帶出科學是有趣而好玩的,每個人都想參與其中。

劍橋生怎樣看:理性科學提升感性親子情

或者你沒有想到,其實從理性至上的科學中,也可以提升到親子之間的親密情感!Sarah很喜歡一句話:「科學面前,人人平等」,她說:「如果你是新手父母,當孩子喜歡向你問東問西時,請容許自己對孩子說:『我不知道』」

因為這樣,你就有機會與孩子一起搜集資料,一起尋找答案,甚至一起進行簡單的小實驗。這種方式反而能令你與孩子建立更緊密的關係:你不只是一個高高在上的父母,也可以與他們如團隊般一起合作、像團隊般親密互信。

小孩怎樣看:科學世界的「失敗」?

古語有「自古成功在嘗試」、「失敗乃成功之母」……其實一直以來「從錯誤中學習」都是一個讓孩子發展出健康心態的重要過程!

Sarah和Nixon曾經有個難忘教學經驗,他們在課堂上讓學生猜猜甚麼東西能被磁鐵吸住,但課堂內一個3歲的小女孩卻被嚇到動彈不得。最後發現,只有3歲的她,原來是害怕答錯答案。「因為害怕錯誤而失去了嘗試的勇氣」這件事是很可怕的,如果你從來不去嘗試,那你是不會失敗,但你也永遠不會成功。失敗並不可怕,但人生沒有「可能性」,這才是最可怕。我們要知道,每一次的失敗都是學習的過程。同時,我們要讓孩子明白,如何在每個經驗中汲取改善的方法,從中我們又能學到甚麼。就如科學家一樣,每個失敗都是新發明的誕生。從失敗中汲取教訓,才是「失敗」的意義所在。
