This year has been a whirlwind and, as we approach year end, many of us at EiE and the Museum of Science are reflecting on what 2020 has brought us. While no one could have prepared for the far-reaching impacts of the global coronavirus pandemic, we are touched by the ways our community has adapted and responded to such an uncertain time.
Early Engineering | Friday, January 25
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.
Early Childhood STEM Education | Wee Engineer | Early Engineering | EiE for Kindergarten | Tuesday, January 22
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.
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.
