Announcing all new at-home and on-the-go activities for families with kids ages 4 – 11 to support STEM learning. This project is generously supported by Overdeck Family Foundation Launch EiE Families Exploring STEM in Space Developed in collaboration with NASA Explore NASA Resources Game-changing Integrated STEM Education The Future Engineering Workforce Drones. Autonomous cars. Robots. Apps that monitor and improve our lives. Engineering and Computer Science are advancing at staggering speeds and changing the way we think, work, communicate and interact. The pace of innovation is so rapid that new technologies of today may be obsolete in just a few years. In fact, experts predict that 65 percent of the jobs that today’s K-6 children will hold haven’t even been invented yet. Teaching and Learning STEM. Together, we will: Deliver better outcomes for all learners in STEM fields Empower educators and the community to build a foundation for engineering and computer science discovery and achievement Keep pace with the changing speed of technology Encourage and motivate children and parents to engage new technologies and support them as they do Who we are Who We Are in STEM Education EiE®, the award-winning curricula division of the Museum of Science, Boston, develops research-based, classroom-tested programs that empower children to become lifelong STEM learners and passionate problem solvers. Since 2003, we’ve designed our PreK-8 curricula to encourage all children, including those from underrepresented groups, to see themselves as engineers. Our flexible print, online and blended hands-on programs bring engineering, science and computer science together to prepare today’s students for a fast-paced, global, technology-savvy future. Why We Do What We Do in STEM Education Curiosity. Discovery. Confidence. We believe in empowering all children. To better prepare our next generation workforce, we infuse our concept of STEM habits of mind—problem solving skills that define success—even from the age of 3. Our STEM solutions are rooted in the Engineering Design Process so students learn to think like engineers. Today’s children need to be problem solvers, critical thinkers, communicators and collaborators —whether preparing for STEM-related careers or to contribute as world citizens.
