R9HSA’s Early Childhood STEM Institute is focused on bringing our community a fun and engaging experience to learn science principles in an interactive, hands-on approach, enabling Head Start education staff to teach about science principles appropriately and knowledgeably.
For 2022, our theme is Educators as Seekers. The 2022 Early Childhood STEM Institute will focus on educators’ discovery and love of science knowledge, technology innovations, engineering creativity, and math reasoning to nurture young learners and their families. We believe in the power of scientific knowledge to ensure school success and beyond. Our emphasis will be to strengthen the STEM identity of all staff working in programs Birth – Age 5, including Home Visitors, Family Child Care partners, Teachers and Managers. Together we will inspire our next generation of STEM advocates.
This will be a three-day virtual institute providing the following learning formats:
I have been to management workshops, not leadership training. This has totally changed my perspective and encouraged me to propel forward in developing my skills.
I am honored and humbled to be a recipient of the Region 9 Head Start Association’s Legacy Scholarship. The scholarship helped me get one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a Head Start Director.
I took part in The disproportionate impact of COVID 19, and how to provide “real” support for black/brown children and families and I just want to say this was an amazing webinar. I hope we can look forward to further conversation on this topic.
Thank you so much for making events like this! I really enjoyed and learned so much teaching strategies to implement STEM in the classroom.
The HR Network was an excellent opportunity to network and learn the best practices from other HR professionals within Head Start programs. You will be amazed by the level of talent and experience of the participants.
The Summer Camp training was powerful and inspiring! Each presenter was very engaging, it’s hard to even pick a favorite session!
The Leadership Challenge training was very relevant to my work as a Head Start leader! Great facilitation; stayed with the program yet allowed time for individual and small group reflections.
