Deeper Learning at Maker State STEM Camp

CEO of the Brain

Our daily projects and practice introduce executive function and self-regulation skills. Executive functioning is the mental process that enables us to plan, focus attention, make decisions, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully. These fundamental abilities, often called the “CEO of the Brain”, enable school achievement, positive behaviors and relationships, good health, and later career success. Our approach to Executive Functioning comes from the Center for the Developing Child at Harvard University.

Social Emotional Learning

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is how children learn to understand and manage emotions, set goals, show empathy for others, establish positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. Our young engineers practice these SEL skills within daily project-based learning experiences. Our approach to SEL comes from the pioneering SEL research and standards of the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL).
