Early Childhood Educators Connect with STEM

Early Childhood Educators Connect with STEM

The STEM Ready program – which introduces early childhood professionals to developmentally appropriate science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities that they can incorporate in their early childhood environments -- is the subject of a new video.

Created through a partnership between Fairfax Futures and Fairfax County Office for Children, the STEM Ready program brought together 37 early childhood educators who spent nine weeks engaged in activities designed to foster children’s natural curiosity and develop their inquiry skills. In addition to their in-class sessions, participants filmed the implementation of the activities with the young children in their early childhood programs, uploaded their videos, and received online feedback from their course instructors.

The program was made possible through a generous grant from The Boeing Company.
