In November, Fairfax Futures completed its highly successful STEM Ready Certificate Program that combines research and real-world classroom experience. The seven-week course, led by instructors from the Fairfax County Office for Children’s Institute for Early Learning, taught an engaged group of early childhood educators how to apply developmentally appropriate science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities in their preschool classrooms. The teachings and materials were targeted for children ages 3, 4 and 5 years of age.
Fairfax Futures created a series of short videos following each course. Try these in your own child care setting or at home with your kids!
Fairfax Futures thanks the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation for its generous grant to support the purchase of STEM kit materials that the educators could fully integrate in their early childhood education programs following the program’s completion. Together we are cultivating the next generation of scientific thinkers!
