Description

STEM, or STE(A)M, initiatives are a global focus in all education sectors at the moment, but what does STEM really mean in the Early Years? Join Anita L’Enfant for a practical look at STEM in your centre.

Get to know STE(A)M beyond the curriculum areas of Science, Technology, Arts and Mathematics, and learn how to integrate the key components of STEM thinking – investigating, revisiting, computational thinking and design thinking processes.

Explore coding as a language of creativity, and find out how to build on STEM activities you didn’t even realise you were already doing!

At the completion of the course, you will understand:

  • That STEM or STEAM is so much more than just the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics curriculum areas.
  • The key components of STEM, including investigating, computational thinking and design thinking processes.
  • How to develop and strengthen practical STEM learning activities in your service
  • The fundamentals of coding, and the importance of coding as a creative language

This webinar runs for approximately 60 minutes.
