Activities to introduce STEM and STEAM to Children on National STEM Day 2020
Children are born naturally curious, and their brains are prepared for exposure to developmentally stimulating experiences starting from a young age. You can introduce innovative thinking with the children in your care by exploring the world around them using STEM/STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics).
Consider using these activities on STEM Day, November 8, 2020, to assist you in introducing infants and toddlers to the wonder of STEM/STEAM.
