Science, technology, engineering and math can be learned at the very young age of preschool. The Pre-K teacher used marshmallows and toothpicks to encourage each child to create a structure. Each showed imagination and persistence. STEM learning is knowledge for the future. According to U.S. Department of Education website.
In an ever-changing, increasingly complex world, it’s more important than ever that our nation’s youth are prepared to bring knowledge and skills to solve problems, make sense of information, and know how to gather and evaluate evidence to make decisions. These are the kinds of skills that students develop in science, technology, engineering and math—disciplines collectively known as STEM.
