Preschool STEM Explorations that Build on and Build Up Children’s Curiosity, Knowledge, and Skills
Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) learning experiences can fascinate and challenge preschool children to think critically about their worlds. What material should we use to wipe up the spill when we can’t find the towel? How many crackers do we need so everyone has the same number? Opportunities to explore STEM are all around us, and children are already asking these questions. In this session, we will define each domain, discuss ways to support children to make sense of STEM in preschool, and to make connections - across STEM domains, throughout the curriculum, and over the preschool year.
