How can computer science and engineering-based curricula effectively be adopted in the early education classroom environment? What type of instructional supports can be utilized to support students’ learning that do not also require a steep learning curve for teachers? This workshop provides hand-on exercises for giving resources to teachers, administrators, and technology specialists to address this. We will introduce participants to a number of resources that educators can incorporate into their early childhood classroom for teaching STEM concepts. This includes tangibles, math games, and coding apps, with curriculum that can be easily adopted for use. Please bring a device.
