.5 CEU Training
“Science makes people reach selflessly for truth and objectivity; it teaches people to accept reality, with wonder and admiration, not to mention the deep awe and joy that the natural order of things brings to the true scientist.” ~ Lise Meitner, Physicist
The acronym STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) has become a buzz word in education.Parents and educators are enthusiastic about the prospect of teaching children to think like scientists, engineers, and mathematicians, and early childhood education is no exception.Children use STEM skills from birth as they make sense of and react to the world around them, and teachers of young children can help children develop critical thinking, problem solving, and reasoning skills that they will need from a young age.It is becoming increasingly clear that the world will present problems to children that haven’t been invented yet, and that today’s children will be tomorrow’s adults who need these critical skills to move through the world successfully.
In this training, educators of children aged birth to five years old will explore the need for robust STEM early education, understand what cognitive skills children are developing in STEM curricula, and work to apply their new understandings to their work in their classrooms in engaging and developmentally appropriate ways.
25% of this training addresses the issues of diverse learners.
