STEM Education at the Earliest Levels Will Improve Science Achievement in our Schools

This week, the Boston Foundation released a sobering study that analyzed the state of STEM education in Boston’s elementary, middle, and high schools. “Getting It Right: Progress and Problems in Raising Science Achievement in Boston” looked closely at student achievement on the MCAS Science and Technology/Engineering tests and compared Boston’s students to those in the rest of the state in the grade-level mastery of science.

Introduction to Early Childhood STEM: Building the Foundation

Want to integrate STEM into your Preschool or Kindergarten? Our free email course will help you get started. Our introductory course, Early Childhood STEM: Building the Foundation, was designed to work into your busy schedule, allowing you to learn at your own pace. In this course we provide an overview of STEM in early childhood: what it is, how kids learn it, and how STEM benefits your youngest learners. If you want to help your students become confident STEM learners, it’s easier than you think to start early.

How do you empower problem-solving in early childhood?

Do you want to learn how to channel young learners’ curiosity and creativity into structured problem solving? It’s a common misconception (and fear) that in order to implement and teach engineering at the early childhood level, you need to to be an expert. That is not the case! You just need to be passionate, curious, and willing to become a facilitator of student learning and growth. Watch our recent edWeb webinar. 

Engineering for All | Engineering and English Language Arts | Thursday, December 6

Have you taught engineering to English Learners?

The EiE team is committed to making engineering accessible to all students, including the fastest-growing student population in the U.S. in the last decade—English Learners. It’s why we offer Spanish translations of storybooks, family letters, and student handouts for every unit of Engineering is Elementary! We're interested in understanding the experiences of educators who teach engineering to groups that include English learners. If you teach, or have taught, engineering to English learners, we would love to hear from you. We value your insights!
