STEM is more than content. It includes habits of mind that are especially vital in the early childhood years: creativity, observation, communication, and persistence. Join us for an overview of JASON's new early childhood collection featuring STEM & Bloom, an interdisciplinary unit that combines art, science, math and literature through the theme of gardening. Hear from early childhood providers who piloted STEM & Bloom this spring as they share their experiences using the program and the impact it had on their early learners. Finally, be the first to get a sneak peek at the early childhood missions that are now under development: The Physics Fair and Water, Wind, and Weather - and learn more about how you can be a part of the next pilot!
