Integrating STEAM into the Early Childhood Education Setting
Register now to join in the 17th annual Early Years Conference at San Diego's
Handlery Hotel for March 6 and March 7, 2020.
The theme for the 2020 conference is Integrating STEAM into the Early Childhood Education Setting.
Keynote speaker Aileen Rizo is the associate director of the AIMS Center of Math and Science Education, a nonprofit whose vision is to see a world of equity through math and science education. Ms. Rizo will share from her own 23+ years’ experience as a teacher, curriculum designer, academic coach, educational consultant, and research associate, as well as her time working in state capacities with the California Department of Education and community organizations. She’ll talk about her work in bringing STEM empowerment to early childhood educators as we see greater efforts that focus on STEAM education at an early age, especially since math has been established as a powerful predictor of future academic achievement.
The conference targets early care and education professionals serving children from infancy through kindergarten, in center-based, school district, and family child care settings.
This conference strives to:
Equip the workforce to prepare developmentally appropriate, inclusive and culturally sensitive approaches in science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM).
Promote and increase awareness of the importance of introducing STEAM education in early childhood (Birth to 5).
Build the understanding that young children have the intellectual capacity to develop higher order thinking skills and knowledge through innovative and creative experiences.
Engage members of the San Diego community in STEAM education through study, dialogue and conversations about the latest developments in early childhood STEAM education research and practice.
Promote school readiness for preschool children that will support a smooth transition to elementary school and provide a foundation for further STEAM learning.
