Children’s imagination takes them to faraway places and into scenarios where they play roles that are meaningful to them. In this training in partnership with the National Air and Space Museum, participants will learn how first-hand explorations in STEM can inspire children’s imaginative play and how imaginative play can prepare children for STEM learning through introducing unfamiliar ideas into play, teaching about scientists and pretending to engage in challenging activities. Participants will discuss how: observations of the moon may lead to constructing cardboard box rocket ships; looking closely at a ladybug may lead to making a set of construction paper wings; pretending to be a dentist may excite children’s interest in using tools; and touching a pretend worm can prepare children to observe live animals. Be prepared to actively participate in this hands-on STEM learning experience.

This training addresses the following age band(s):

  • Early childhood - middle (36-60 months)
This session will be conducted via webinar. All registrants will be emailed a link to participate in this training session.
