Author's bio

Early childhood teachers continue to seek activities that promote STEM-based learning. But most STEM books focus on science and math, excluding technology and engineering. Creative Investigations in Early Engineering and Technology helps teachers create a more well-rounded STEM learning program. You'll learn to: encourage children to think, make, tinker and innovate; introduce engineering skills such as coding in a developmentally appropriate way; leverage children's use of digital technologies to help them learn new skills; and promote active engagement and participation in classroom learning.
