: Grown-ups - ”including teachers - ”tend to underestimate preschoolers' capacity to learn scientific principles as well as the length of time they'll spend exploring such ideas. However, there are no greater natural scientists and engineers than young children -- they are inquisitive and naturally learn as they play. Building on children - ™s early STEAM competencies through intentional use of materials and questions promotes higher-level thinking and can make a difference for vulnerable children. Let - ™s support every child to be a Scientist, Techie, Engineer, Artist and Mathematician!
