Presenter: Anita L'Enfant
STEM, or STE(A)M, initiatives are a global focus in all education sectors at the moment, but what does STEM really mean in the Early Years? Join Anita L’Enfant, (long time educator, consultant, mother of two and passionate learner), for a practical look at STEM in your centre. You will get to know STE(A)M beyond the curriculum areas of Science, Technology, Arts and Mathematics, learning about how to integrate the key components of STEM thinking - investigating, revisiting, computational thinking and design thinking processes. You will be invited to explore coding as a language of creativity and be given opportunities to reflect on your own STEM learning. Find out how to build on the STEM activities you didn’t even realise you were already doing!
