For this month’s live stream we were honored to speak with Amber Scardino, founder of Figment Creative Labs, and co-author of STEAM Kids.
Amber Scardino’s dream was to create a space for people to explore and build confidence in their own creativity. What started in her garage with her two boys grew into classes and camps, and last year into a brick-and-mortar operation called Figment Creative Labs, with a process art studio, a maker space and a discovery lab that focuses on S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math).
In this Summit Session, Amber spoke with us about S.T.E.A.M. activities and process play, and how to set up your nanny kids with educational activities that are age-appropriate. We learned about where to research amazing learning opportunities, and how to organize your lessons in a way that are engaging and fun, while also imparting valuable technical lessons to the kids.
