Understanding and recognising science, technology, engineering and maths in play

Nicole Halton, Natashja Treveton

Dedicated to STEM education, Bringing STEM to Life diverges from traditional ‘how to’ guides for setting up science, technology, engineering, and math activities. Instead, it delves into the intricacies of children’s play and how educators can foster meaningful STEM exploration.

Key Highlights:

  • Understanding Play Complexity: Gain insights into the nuanced nature of children’s play and its inherent connection to STEM concepts.
  • Real-Life Examples: Illustrates concepts with real-world examples, showcasing how engaging environments and interactions promote STEM exploration.
  • Quality Resources: Emphasises the importance of quality resources in facilitating meaningful STEM learning experiences.
  • Commitment to Play: Advocates for a play-based approach, demonstrating how it naturally encourages children to explore STEM disciplines.

Bringing STEM to Life is a valuable resource for educators seeking to deepen their understanding of how to effectively integrate STEM into early childhood education through engaging play-based activities and environments.
