STEM: It’s not just for adults

July 3, 2014

Dr. Diana Wehrell-Grabowski explains that it’s important not only to emphasize STEM learning later on in education, but in young children as well.

As Dr. Diana Wehrell-Grabowski says in the video, children begin learning STEM concepts from a very young age, whether you realize it or not. With that knowledge, it may be important to take note of that and push it a little further. Being intentional about the games and activities that young children play with could be the answer to getting the next generations interested in STEM. Instead of letting kids reign free and do what they want, gently nudging them towards more STEM-related toys and activities could be what pushes them to eventually become the next scientist, mathematician, computer scientist or engineer.
