Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills are no longer just “good skills” to have; they are increasingly vital to a 21st-century education. Research tells us that engagement with math and science at the elementary level is critical to student success in later years.
Join us for this Webinar, “Integrating STEM in the Elementary Years: Why It’s Critical to Start Early,” to learn from national STEM education experts why the elementary years are so important for engaging students in the STEM disciplines, and for retaining their interest into their later school years.
- Hear from a national STEM expert how to articulate to your teachers and parent community STEM’s importance, and how to help them see its relevance to real world problems.
- See how teachers are addressing the need in the classroom to engage elementary students in these critical subjects.
- Get the tools and resources to implement an integrated STEM approach in your school or district’s science, technology, and math curriculum.
