Video Footage Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Workshop For Early Childhood TeachersDiana Wehrell-Grabowski on July 25, 2011 in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Education No Comments »
These days we hear quite a bit about incorporating STEM education in K-12 classrooms. STEM explorations can and should be incorporated into the early childhood classroom. Early childhood classrooms already incorporate science, math, and simple engineering explorations. Along with the K-12 STEM teacher training workshops I conduct nation and worldwide, I’ve developed STEM teacher training workshops for early childhood teachers. The early childhood teachers have been very receptive to incorporating STEM explorations within their early childhood classrooms. Below is select video footage from a recent early childhood teacher training workshop I conducted. 75 early childhood teachers were actively engaged in conducting hands-on-minds-on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) explorations. Additionally, teachers were introduced to children’s literature that had STEM-related themes. Once again, a great group of teachers.
