Early Years & STEM: Curious, Creative, Connected

The Early Learning Alliance Network will provide two half-days of professional development to early learning professionals. Day 1 will focus on birth to age 2, Day 2 will focus on age 3-5. Our focus will be on providing hands on learning opportunities for these professionals to directly understand STEM/STEAM learning for young children using play-based learning experiences as a mechanism to develop curiosity, problem solving, and other key skills through early learning environments, materials, and tools that are developmentally appropriate. Access more events from the Early Learning Alliance Network.
