Through hands-on exploration and repeated exposure to the diverse ecosystem concepts of Science, Technology (critical thinking as precursor to achieving technology), Environmental Education, Art, Mathematics (STEAM) as well as creativity, imaginative play, collaboration and numerous psychological and physical benefits of spending time in nature will blossom within each child over time.
