StarT at home

The attitudes of one’s family have a significant role in how a child will view learning and different school subjects. Encouragement and support from the family as well as collaborative learning within the family help the child’s development as a learner. 

Interest in natural sciences, mathematics, and technology may be sparked at a very early stage through positive experiences from home. Families can carry out different projects together that allow them to spend more time together and learn as a team.

Could your family do a project about the inheritance of eye colour? Or perhaps you would like to become better acquainted with the history of aircraft development?

See the StarT themes for ideas of project topics. 

Like other types of learning communities, families are also to submit their projects through the StarT website. Reporting is done through the online form (starting in October 2017), and instructions can be found here.
