How to get Kids Engaged With STEM
Early math skills are the strongest predictor of later school success. Simple activities like counting and playing with
puzzles can build children's STEM skills. A research team at the University of Washington's Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences has been looking
for ways to make STEM more engaging for children.
Teacher and students in preschool group activity
Studies show that preschool children who participated in a 26-week math curriculum had math test scores that improved
twice as much as children in a control group with a standard preschool curriculum. Even talking more about math and playing board games can boost
preschool children's STEM abilities.
The answer that the University of Washington's research team reached was simple – make STEM learning social.
