2018 The Early Childhood STEM Institute – Children as Adventurers

May 7 - May 9

May 7-9, 2018

The Garland Hotel, North Hollywood, CA

Hotel Cutoff Date – April 16, 2018

All my life through, the new sights of nature made me rejoice like a child.—Marie Curie

What fun is this—learning how to teach young children about science, technology, engineering and math! George Washington Carver said, “Since new developments are the products of a creative mind, we must therefore stimulate and encourage that type of mind in every way possible.” And so teaching the very young STEM concepts is a strategy that will reap huge rewards for the future while serving as a fun, engaging activity in the present.

The Early Childhood STEM Institute brings joy of learning in a tangible and hands-on way for the entire Head Start community—teachers, home visitors, family advocates, child care partners, education coordinators, managers and directors and parents. Registration deadline is April 30, 2018.

  • Pre-Conference

    In this six-hour session, Participants will engage in coaching conversations where techniques for effective listening and for asking effective questions will intentionally transform how we relate to each other every day in our most significant and meaningful work. This highly interactive workshop will propel you forward with achieving your goals and objectives by aligning the outcomes you desire with your greatest natural talents and strengths. Discover what the organization called Gallup has done with decades of research and critical thinking to support us in learning to tap into who we already are to maximize our productivity! Be willing to practice some basic coaching skills with colleagues in this session, and if you are experiencing a transition in your life (professionally or personally), leave this session inspired to take your next steps–moving into action toward making that significant difference you desire to make in the lives of people we serve!”
