What is summer Brain Drain?

As you probably noticed, your kids tend to veg out a bit over the summer. It’s between the last and first day of school that children forget a lot of what they learned the previous school year. The result is your kids start the school year several steps behind of where they were on that last day.

Say what?!

It’s true, according to Gary Huggins, chief executive of the National Summer Learning Association, as well as other learning experts. Huggins says studies show that kids lose as much as two to three months of math and reading skills over the summer.

So what can be done?

At Piper, we believe the best way for kids to learn and be engaged is by doing. Our mission, in fact, is to impact kids globally by growing their confidence around being creators of technology instead of purely consumers. And that is why we’ve got you covered with 5 weeks of the best STEAM projects to help prevent summer brain drain.

Remind me about STEAM?

Sure. You may already be familiar with STEAM: the subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. These subjects utilize the learning that's needed for the jobs of the future. The good news is these are also the most hands-on subjects that make for great summer projects.
