Making the Case for Early STEM Learning (TechSoup)

Join the Early Learning Lab and Julie Sweetland from the FrameWorks Institute to explore how to make a stronger case for early STEM experiences. A FrameWorks research into American public thinking revealed that people assume that science, technology, engineering, and math are highly specialized areas of knowledge that aren’t appropriate for young learners. In turn, this limits public support for the policies, funding, and programs that can foster early learning in these vital areas. We’ll discuss and explore proven, practical ways for early childhood advocates to talk about why and how early STEM matters.
