Cultivating STEM Literacy, Igniting a Lifelong Love for Learning

Early exposure to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) has many positive effects on a child’s overall learning. Early childhood STEM education, often referred to as STEM-STEAM learning, is a popular educational movement. It is not just a set of lessons, but a way of thinking that encourages students to connect knowledge in different areas and think in a more holistic way. Project-based learning is considered the best approach to teaching STEM and can be introduced to preschoolers in both formal and informal settings. Since children form their attitudes towards STEM early on, their initial experiences with these subjects greatly influence their future success in STEM fields. Creating a positive relationship with science, technology, engineering, and math in kindergarten can influence a child’s future achievements and gains. Cultivating curiosity, creativity, and confidence through STEM activities and integrated instruction is key to making kindergarten students STEM literate. The emphasis is on encouraging a mindset that connects knowledge across subjects. In kindergarten, where play is a common form of interaction, small group activities and collaborative projects can help children gain confidence in interacting with others. Teachers play a key role in creating a positive classroom environment by developing strong relationships with each child, structuring the physical and social aspects of the classroom, and teaching specific social skills when needed. For children who lack certain social skills, such as sharing or inviting others to play, teachers can provide opportunities to develop skills and make the most of teaching moments. Well-designed learning centres further enhance the likelihood of positive interactions and reduce the likelihood of challenging behaviours.

Participants will be introduced to the concept of STEM learning and recognise that it is a holistic way of thinking that encourages cross-disciplinary connections. The training will emphasize the effectiveness of project-based learning with STEM to preschoolers in both formal and informal settings and the benefits of teaching through STEM for the future of young learners. Participants will be provided with strategies for promoting these advantages to preschool students through engaging STEM activities and integrated learning. In addition, participants will discover strategies for developing strong relationships with each child, building physical and social aspects of the classroom, and teaching specific social skills through STEM instruction.


The methodology of this training course on STEM education in early childhood, focuses on an interactive and practical approach, incorporating both theoretical knowledge and practical experience. This training will focus on workshops, group exercises, play-based learning and classroom simulations. The aim is to create a community among participants, creating opportunities for networking and collaboration beyond the training period. At the end of this course, participants will be encouraged to create a Facebook group, which will keep in touch and share some STEM exercises and experiences, for long-term support and better dissemination of these good practises to other educators of parents.
