Teaching young children complicated scientific and mathematical concepts can be intimidating. Simple STEAM helps teachers realize they don’t need to be engineers or scientists to support STEAM learning. In this edWebinar, educators will:
- Discover ways you can engage young minds in STEAM learning to help them investigate questions, solve problems and think of potential improvements
- Understand how STEAM learning in preschool can strengthen and expand with the use of specific vocabulary
- Learn frameworks and techniques to introduce concepts to STEAM themes
This edWebinar will benefit preK teachers. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
