Inspiring Innovation in Early Childhood
A STEAM workshop for villagers that work with ages 3 - 8.
When we think of helping young children become innovators, we imagine them designing buildings, exploring bubbling science experiments, or writing the next great novel. We know our little learners are full of BIG ideas, but we also know they need our support to reach their highest potential. Let's explore how to encourage challenge, learn from failure, and use creative thinking. This will be a hands-on session, sharing with our village how to inspire innovation and critical thinking through an exploration inspired by Temple Grandin that can be used at family STEAM events, lessons, and more!

Nursery Rhyme STEAM For Young Learners
A STEAM Workshop for villagers that work with ages 3 - 8.
Hands On STEAM Explorations for Young Learners: Problem-Based Investigations for Preschool to Second Grade, our anchor text for this workshop, uses popular children’s nursery rhymes to explore rigorous STEAM concepts appropriate for young children. In this hands-on/minds- on session villagers will explore how to increase challenge with age appropriate real-world learning connections through literacy and STEAM investigations, screen free coding, and develop an understanding of how the investigations and content builds across the grade levels.
