Make a Difference Now – Why Early STEM Education is Essential

Date: Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM (Eastern Time)

Cost: Free, but all MUST register.

Presented by Johannes Strobel, Ph.D., Texas A&M University; with Sara Delano Moore, Ph. D., Director of Mathematics and Science at ETA hand2mind

Abstract: Students, especially girls, start losing interest in STEM subjects as early as second grade. As such, early STEM education is critical in order to build and maintain student interest in the STEM disciplines. Students need integrated STEM experiences to provide a foundation in engineering design principles with opportunities to apply their learning to mathematics, science, and language arts.

ETA hand2mind and Texas A&M collaborated to develop a series of classroom-tested, hands-on modules that strike the perfect balance of rigor and ease of use for PreK-5. Join Dr. Johannes Strobel and Dr. Sara Delano Moore on May 21 to learn about early STEM education research and integrated STEM solutions that reach students with real-world connections.
