STEM-sational Learning: What to Look for in Early Childhood Programming
March 19, 2015
If you’re a children’s or youth services librarian or early childhood professional this webinar is for you! In this Hatch Early Learning-sponsored webinar, Susan Gunnewig, Vice President of Product Development, draws from her extensive background in early childhood education to give you insights on the importance of STEM curriculum for our youngest learners.
Did you know that some preschool curriculums only spend 58 seconds of a five-hour day on math education? Or that there is only one preschool curriculum that meets the Committee on K–12 Engineering Education’s standards to adequately teach engineering basics? Early childhood educators and children’s librarians know how important these skills are, but how can you tailor this information for young children?
Join us and learn:
- Why STEM is such a hot topic for early education
- What STEM looks like in a learning environment
- How STEM education in preschool connects with kindergarten Common Core
- Ways to integrate STEM into the learning schedule
