DescriptionEngineering is the process of using science and technology to solve real-world problems. Today’s preschoolers are tomorrow’s engineers and problem-solvers! In each 45-minute class we use will use a thought-provoking storybook to engage children in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) challenges. Little engineers will learn science and math concepts as they design and create solutions to problems connected to the characters in the story or their everyday lives.Research asserts that most brain development happens in the first three years of a child’s life. Each 45-minute Science Tots class is designed to provide opportunities to support brain development and learning. Toddlers and their grown-ups will explore STEM(Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) topics through songs,stories,hands-on exploration,and play. Activities will ignite curiosity and wonder in young children as well as empower parents and caregivers to support their child’s STEM learning in class and in their daily lives.Babies are born scientists. They learn through play by observing, exploring, and testing the world around them. When adults join in and support their discoveries, they learn even more. Each 45-minute Small Scientists class is designed to enable little ones and their grown-ups to interact with and explore science through stories, songs, play, and other hands-on experiences. We will explore ways parents and care givers can support and encourage their child’s science learning and over all development in class and at home.
