STEM in the Elementary Years: Why it’s critical to start early!

Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills are no longer just “good skills” to have; they are increasingly vital to a 21st century education. This workshop will look at why the elementary years are so important for engaging students in the STEM disciplines.

Learn how to articulate to your teachers and parent community the importance of STEM education, Share best practices of how STEM integration is done well including case studies and research on the impact on student achievement, Take-away resources that can be used in the classroom to integrate STEM subjects within existing instruction time.
