Developing Children’s Math through STEM Education - Part I

STEM Education is a great opportunity for children to learn about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The art of developing activities and projects that incorporate all four components is phenomenal. In addition, STEM Education teaches the important role that structure and function play in our everyday lives.

Part I of this two-part series will provide an overview of how we can plan and implement STEM projects with an inquiry-based approach to learning. This will be an opportunity to learn how to promote innovation and creativity in children using everyday materials found in classrooms.  

Developing Children’s Math through STEM Education Part II
January 23, 2023

In part II of this series, participants will see new STEM projects that will support the implementation of meaningful conversations with children. Attendees will be introduced to new methods and strategies that will prepare them to ask higher order thinking questions to children with the goal of developing critically thinking students. We will take some time to share attendees’ child created STEM projects in progress. The group will also take the time to analyze and interpret children’s creations and plan together to enhance the teaching and learning experiences of the students. Finally, participants will engage in a brainstorming activity to plan how they can incorporate STEM projects throughout the school year.
