This is a very different school year for many students around the country, with many kids of all ages starting classes virtually due to COVID-19.
Subaru of America is doing something cool to help families who are largely learning from home right now. It’s supporting the development of educational science-focused activities and resources families can use at home, in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
“At Subaru, we have seen firsthand how a strong education in science, engineering and innovation can enrich children’s lives and benefit future generations,” said Alan Bethke, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Subaru of America. “While school may look different for some, we hope these resources created in partnership with AAAS help families expand their children’s worlds at home and prove just how fun learning can be.”
The library of resources
, created by the AAAS STEM Education Program, provides quality and interactive online activities for young people in grades K-8. They cover a variety of science disciplines including, biology, astronomy, physics and more, and are designed for families to complete together. Subaru says they can also be incorporated into lesson plans for teachers.
“We are developing resources that encourage inquiry and discovery at home during a time when children may not be receiving as much hands-on science instruction,” said Suzanne Thurston, director of the AAAS STEM Education Program. “Activities are designed to be accessible and easy to navigate.”
To access the resources - just head to the AAAS/Subaru Prize for Excellence in Science Books website. You can also find new content each Wednesday posted on the AAAS/Subaru Book Prize social channels on both Facebook
