Introducing STEM in the early years entails the need for teachers to understand its content and how to incorporate STEM education with greater intention in to the instructional day. Finding developmentally appropriate curriculum; being culturally sensitive and allowing young children to discover the world of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in a safe, supportive environment is required. We use proven STEM methods and have deep levels of specialization to inspire children in productive ways. We use free and guided, adult responsive, STEM-play based learning with children. It is the most effective kind of STEM learning for young children. It can inspire them not only to learn, but to apply what they know in new situations and to continue to love learning for years! We specialize in STEM for children Birth to Age 8. We are proud to serve on the Steering Committee for ECSTEM (www.ewcstem.org) and #stemstartsearly, White House Early Learning STEM Symposium.

Thank you Peggy Ashbrook for capturing our workshop participants as they explored improving designs and the importance of offering problems that are important to children using materials so children may create solutions to meet their needs! http://nstacommunities.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/IMG_5340.mov
