K-12: Early Childhood Education STEM-EC: Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics-Early Childhood

Creates an area of focus for research and professional development in early childhood math and science. STEM-EC will meet a growing need for better preparation of teachers of young children. It will also look to modernize the math and science curriculum in early childhood to meet the needs of 21st century learners. STEM-EC will recruit faculty and students to be a part of a multi-disciplinary research group investigating best practices in teaching math and science to young children. Findings from this group will be used to shape local, state and national policy with regard to teaching math and science to young children.
