4-part STE(A)M Interactive Series that includes the following courses for Infant – Pre-k Age Groups:

Part 1. An Introduction to STE(A)M Learning Setting (1.5 In-Service Hours)
● What exactly is STE(A)M learning anyway? STE(A)M learning is about discovery. When teachers invest in STE(A)M learning experiences, they encourage children to develop real-life problem-solving skills. Engaging children in high-quality STE(A)M activities addresses cultural issues and increases diversity in STE(A)M fields in the generations to come. Teachers and children who engage in STEAM learning learn and practice processes and skills that connect and build upon one another. When teachers regularly engage in STEAM learning they enhance children’s independence, provide opportunities for children to engage with a variety of materials, and increase children’s vocabulary.

Part 2. Looking Closer at the Science and Math in STE(A)M Learning (1.5 In-Service Hours)
