SURPRISING STEM - Focus on the Skills, Not the Tech!

Did you know you can engage in STEM learning without robots, circuits or other costly tech materials? Yes, you can! In fact, focusing on the mindset and skills behind STEM, rather than the bells and whistles, results in a more organic, accessible, and meaningful experience for all. Ruth will share ideas for STEM activities using materials you may already have on hand, including picture books and items repurposed from the recycling bin.

• Sequencing/Beginning, Middle and End

• Cause and Effect
