Description: 

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 STEAM can inspire children’s imaginative play and how imaginative play can prepare children for STEAM 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 STEAM learning experience.

This training addresses the following age band(s):

  • Early childhood - middle (36-60 months)
