open in viewer

Preschool is an integral factor in development and learning for young children. Children have the opportunity to be engaged in age-appropriate activities and begin understanding the world they live in. This highly-developmental time during the life span is therefore the perfect time to introduce concepts in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math field, specifically engineering. This project aimed to create an engineering curriculum for preschool students that was both developmentally and culturally appropriate, and a professional development series to help teachers feel more confident with STEM education. This collaborative project demonstrated preliminary success and has the potential to change STEM education interventions.
