In today's changing world, it's more important than ever to work towards authentic, engaging, and trustworthy STEM experiences starting with children's earliest learning experiences.
Advances in STEM are pervasive in modern society, impacting the food that we eat, the medicine we take, and the fuel that we use to power our electronics. As children enter this swiftly evolving world, technology innovation is rapidly outpacing our ability to meaningfully educate children in novel STEM domains and prepare them for the world in which they are growing. In my ongoing research, professional training, and community outreach, I address the pressing need for evidence-based pedagogy and practice recommendations to prepare young generations with positive early STEM experiences.
