Inviting early childhood educators and teachers to engage in inquiry-based, child-led STEM practices, this module discusses common notions of STEM and unfolds what STEM in the early years looks like. It will help educators become aware of everyday learning opportunities relevant to children’s lives and develop a basic understanding of co-constructed environments, the principles of inquiry-based learning and the concept of metacognition.
