Early Learner Series

Even the youngest students love engaging with STEM! Learn best practices for integrating STEM into your early learner classroom and set a strong foundation of curiosity and excitement for learning that they will carry with them for years to come. Host these workshops at your location or bring a group to Carnegie Science Center.

For more information, call Wendy Brenneman, Manager of Early Childhood STEM Initiatives, at 412.802.2155 or email BrennemanW@CarnegieScienceCenter.Org.


Hello Robo: Early STEM Robotics

PreK–2 educators | Three-hour workshop | Three hours of Act 48 credit

Robots provide unseen services in industries such as transportation, medical, and manufacturing industries. Early learners need the foundational STEM skills that allow them to imagine and build the robots of the future. Use resources from NAEYC and other STEM experts to examine developmentally appropriate concepts to prepare your students for robotics technologies. Discover hands-on, standards-aligned activities you can do right away, even if you don’t have a robot (yet!).


On a Roll: Early Engineering with STEM

PreK–2 educators | Three-hour workshop | Three hours of Act 48 credit

Use easily accessible materials to explore the engineering processes that make building marvels such as bridges, inclines, and mass transportation systems. Re-energize your use of physics standards and uncover new methods of STEM engagement. Use resources from NAEYC and evidence from classroom-tested activities to design a four-week investigation into ramps to complement curriculum units on transportation and neighborhoods.


Project-Based Learning in Early Years

PreK–2 educators | Three-hour workshop | Three hours of Act 48 credit

When early learners engage in the project approach, their learning spans multiple domains and standards, including STEM. Discover the phases of project-based learning (PBL) for young children, from choosing a topic to sharing your findings. Guided by case studies, evaluate multiple approaches and collaboratively build a project plan that maximizes STEM engagement.
