Description

Session Five: Engineering in the Early Years
(Spring into STEM: A Workshop Series for Early Childhood Educators)
Date | Time:
Wednesday, April 24, 2019, 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm
Trainer: Orinthia Harris
Early engineering often takes the form of students building with blocks or Legos. Engineering instruction should not be relegated to constructing with Lego bricks.This workshop will help you "step outside the blocks" to motivate the next generation of problem solvers. Developing an engineering identity in the early years is a significant indicator of education and professional persistence. Teachers will participate in hands-on engineering challenges that empower young children to see themselves as problem solvers. These activities also help young learners to understand that there is more than one way to solve a problem, and that it’s okay to fail and try again. Age-appropriate engineering activities are crucial for setting young learners up for success. This session will help you to create young engineers, inciting their interest and enthusiasm, as they construct simple devices to solve everyday problems.
