Join us in investing in New Mexico’s future!
Be curious. Discover. Explore: 2018 Building Science Learning in Early Childhood Summit is an opportunity for early childhood practitioners to participate in practical and hands-on professional development workshops. These workshops will support the building of knowledge, skills, and abilities of early childhood practitioners to integrate developmentally and culturally appropriate science, technology, engineering, math, and art (STEAM) learning experiences into their work with young children and their family members.
Why are we offering this opportunity?
We know that “Early STEM Matters” -- Young children have innate abilities to be creative scientists and engineers. By providing high quality experiences in science, engineering, and math in the early years can significantly impact learning outcomes later in life. When families, schools, and communities work together, children do better academically, behaviorally, and socially. That is why we, Explora and the Bernalillo County Early Childhood Accountability Partnership, the UNM Family Development Program, the Central New Mexico Community College, the New Mexico Public Broadcasting Station (NM PBS), and the UNM Early Childhood Services Center - Toy Lending & Resource Libraries, as well as others in our community are offering this opportunity with the support of the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
We hope that you will join us as we plant seeds of STEM, invest in our future, and have fun discovering, exploring, and being curious.
*CEU’s will be offered for Saturday workshops.
