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.
Early Childhood STEM Education | Wee Engineer | Early Engineering | EiE for Kindergarten | Create a Generation of Problem Solvers | Tuesday, December 11
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 and English Language Arts | Engineering for All | Thursday, December 6
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!
The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) is holding its annual conference in Washington, DC from November 14-17, 2018. The EiE team will be out in full force to launch our newest early childhood curricula Wee Engineer and EiE for Kindergarten! We’re excited to share what we've learned about early childhood engineering. We love meeting educators, answering burning questions,and discovering the amazing things happening in classrooms or districts across the country. If you’re attending #naeycAC, check out below what we have in store!
Wee Engineer | Preschool | Pre-K | Kindergarten | EiE for Kindergarten | Engineering Activities | Tuesday, October 9
Young learners are natural engineers, ready to innovate and eager to explore the world around them. Extending our curricula offerings to the youngest learners and creating an engineering design process for the preschool classroom seemed like a natural next step for EiE. Our newest curricula, Wee Engineer and EiE for Kindergarten, are picking up press With our recent feature in T.H.E. Journal, we were reminded how much we couldn’t have created our newest offerings without our closest collaborators: educators! Every EiE unit undergoes multiple rounds of pilot testing to ensure that educators can implement engineering with ease. Our pilot educators teach in a variety of settings and have varying levels of experience with engineering. With their feedback and guidance, we’ve learned so much about how to design hands-on engineering activities for preschoolers and kindergartners. Hear from these passionate educators, download free sample lessons from Wee Engineer and EiE for Kindergarten, and create a generation of problem solvers.
