Turning Natural Curiosity into STEM Success

Proulx Oil & Propane is Proud to Support NHPTV and the STEM from the START Program, a new video plus activities curriculum for grades Pre K - 2

Newmarket, NH; November 7, 2016 - STEM from the START is a new curriculum that deeply engages PreK-2 students in STEM by blending animated adventures with teacher-guided activities. Designed with the help of lead thinkers in STEM education and distributed at no cost via the Internet, STEM from the START nurtures and focuses students' natural curiosity and love of exploration while laying the groundwork for ongoing STEM success. The stars of STEM from the START are Quinks (QUizzical thINKers from Space), insatiably curious aliens on a mission to learn Earth's science secrets. With the help of their Earth friends, the Quinks delve into the basics of physical science and the other STEM disciplines, drawing young students into a world of discovery, wonder and fun.

"We are pleased to be partnering with NHPTV and the STEM from the START initiative. Programs that really make science and mathematics challenging and fun, like STEM from the START, are so important if we want to encourage children to pursue STEM fields", said Jim Proulx, President.
