A student who has developed strong thinking skills and acquired the ability to think critically and creatively will be well-prepared to excel in the world of artificial intelligence (AI). AI relies on problem-solving, pattern recognition, and innovation, and these cognitive abilities are enhanced by a strong thinking foundation.
Creativity and thinking skills designed for pre-schoolers so they can have fun and learn how to think using proven thinking keys!
The simple test created by Land and Jarman for NASA can be applied to individuals of any age, leading them to measure the progress of 1,600 children aged 4 to 5. An astonishing 98% of the children were considered geniuses based on the results. However, 5 years later when the same test was administered to the same group of children, the percentage of geniuses dropped significantly to only 30%. Today, as the kids are in high school, only 12% of them were found to have reached the genius level once again when tested.
When Rand conducted the same test on adults with an average age of 31, he found that only a small percentage, less than 2%, were considered geniuses.
It has been discovered that as we age, our creativity decreases. This is why young children learn new languages more quickly than adults. The good news is that creativity can be nurtured. By exposing children to various brain simulations, their creativity can be sustained and they can develop different perspectives when approaching problems.
FOUNDATION | Capture and remember the color of an object. Capture the numbers in the correct order with photographic memory skills. Capture and number them in the correct order.
BASIC | Identify and spot differences. To capture the image and recall it correctly. To capture a picture and find the right one. Images are captured quickly and sequenced correctly.
INTERMEDIATE | Capture different parts of the color and recall it correctly. Remember people and their names, and recall correctly. Practice listening and finding the right picture. Being able to capture all the flashed photos and recall it by listening to a short story.
HIGHER | Capture highlighted areas and be able to call out. To be able to capture selected picture words and recall them in sequence. To be able to capture and recall pictures sequentially.
STEM stands for the acronym of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It is a term initiated by the National Science Foundation in the United States.
From birth to 5 years old, it is considered a key point for neural or brain development. During the earliest years, infants develop 700 neural connections per second. Research shows that the drive for exploration and interaction begins in childhood, even before elementary or middle school. Children are naturally curious about their surroundings and enjoy trying new things. The habit of questioning and craving to try new things will provide them a better foundation for their lifelong curiosity, and they will perform better. Their brains are always full of questions and hungry for information. By thinking and learning through creative methods, we turn young minds into tomorrow’s innovators. This will keep CRETS participants engaged in STEM education as they continue their elementary school studies.
How is CRETS connected to STEM? GeniusBrain CRETS stimulates creativity and curiosity. In CRETS curriculum, students are encouraged to exercise their creativity and contribute to solving simple problems. They are also encouraged to express their ideas and opinions through various modes of thinking, to stimulate their cognitive abilities. GeniusBrain CRETS lays the foundation for participants to ask more questions in their learning process. And this progression will result in the participants developing an interest in STEM education. GeniusBrain CRETS themes such as symmetry matching, sequence recognition, visual perception, and memory retention serve as examples of some of the standards for students to successfully engage in STEM education in the elementary school stage.
Different type of thinking keys to stimulate thinking abilities. We provide a total of 12 sets of thinking keys to help children to learn thinking in an informal way. Through the thinking keys, children will be able to identify others emotion and think of various ways to interpret information receive. Children can share their ideas and opinions about a certain simulated event.
