Title: An Introduction to STEM in Preschool Library Programming: What It Is, Why Do It, and How to Get Started

Part 1: Wednesday, June 12, 2019, 1:30-2:30 PM
Part 2: Wednesday, June 19, 2019, 1:30-2:30 PM

Presenter: Alissa A. Lange, PhD, Associate Professor of Early Childhood Education, East Tennessee State University

Description:

We will explore science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts in preschool, why to include this content in library story times and programs, and how to get started. With many years of experience working with preschool teachers, families, and with libraries, Dr. Lange will demystify STEM and early STEM education.

We hope attendees will leave with inspiration to include more STEM concepts in their programming for young children in a way that builds on what children and families are already doing, and that empowers children, families, and library staff to find the STEM all around them every day. We will discuss many examples of how STEM concepts can be easily incorporated into preschool programs.

The webinars will be recorded and archived. For more information, please see the attached flyer (PDF).
