Engineering in the Early Years
Playing, learning and communicating with blocks and more.
Children communicate emotions and ideas through block building and other three-dimensional work. Join us live-online as we share research, classroom stories, hands-on explorations and rich conversations to strengthen your capacity to see and support the many ways children play and learn with natural and human-made materials for building indoors and out. You’ll leave this workshop with tools to:
- Discuss engineering skills in ages 0-5 and how to support children’s explorations, competencies and communication
- Learn a language to assess support and celebrate children’s emerging engineering skills.
- Understand the concept of visual-spatial thinking and how to support this learning in outdoor classrooms
- Set the stage for learning indoors and out with intentional focus on space and materials
You will receive an email the day before, and the day of, the event which will include the Zoom link. A Nature Explore Workshop certificate of attendance will be provided upon completion of the training.
