especially literacy and numeracy
and reasoning skills
Offering intentional, systemic opportunities to develop and use these skills in peer and adult relationships provides the foundation for future growth
Most educators haven’t had the opportunity to build systemic, intentional practice around these ideas.
STEM provides engaging content for application of these skills and creates curiosity in children that can later develop into interest.
Early Education 1: STEM in the World - Building the Foundation in the Early Years / PEEP & the Big Wide World
A universal pedagogy that takes STEM from theory to practice in the early stages of brain development. WGBH has been developing curriculum that supports STEM in the early years, working with 3-5 year olds to ensure that critical thinking, math and science habits of mind, inquisitiveness/curiosity about the world and our environment help shape the next generation of leaders. We will also explore the importance of this early investment in our society and our economic future.
Early Education 2: Preparing Adults to Support Brain Building in Progress - Programs in the Lead
A presentation of programs successfully integrating science, technology, engineering, and math into the classroom followed by a group strategy session facilitated by EEC Commissioner Sherri Killins and Wheelock President Jackie Jenkins-Scott on the roles of the state, business, and higher education in developing the policies, resources, and activities needed to improve STEM access in our environment.

Goal: Show children grades K-5, in a hands-on approach, how STEM content can be discovered in all learning environments. An innovative approach of connecting STEM education with Art and Design.
We’ve seen some creative ways to weave STEM concepts into early education and out of school time.
