What is STEM in early childhood education?

Students learned how to plan activities in science, technology, engineering and math appropriate for young children. We want young children develop a sound base of skills and love for science, technology, math and engineering. This starts well before elementary school with our educated child care teachers conducting intentional learning activities such as these.

These are some pics of the classroom activities we are doing at MPTC to learn about STEM.

What do students think about this new class?

“STEM was my favorite early childhood class so far! – I loved the STEM class. I enjoyed searching for activities that could be incorporated into the daily routine with children. I also learned that STEM doesn’t have to be difficult. Good teachers are already doing it without realizing it! I love the “Hands on- Minds on questions.” – Tammie
