I-LABS in the Classroom: Module 19: Early STEM Learning

Horizontal tabs



All children deserve the best start in life and new scientific discoveries deepen our understanding of how to create the best environments for children. The team at I-LABS creates new and effective ways to bridge the gap between the science and the practice of learning by disseminating the latest science of child development. Our team shares the latest scientific discoveries in relevant and actionable ways with those who can best put it into practice: early learning professionals, parents, and policymakers. Partners use cutting-edge research to create evidence-based policies, practices, and programs that grow the next generation of lifelong learners..

This hour long class covers the following points:

  • It is important to build children's STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) skills starting at an early age so they become fluent.
  • Parents/teachers can provide children with a variety of STEM materials and activities, and ask questions about what children observe and expect.
  • Doing STEM activities with other people can help children enjoy STEM.

Saturdays,  Sundays AND ALL Evening Classes: feel free to park in the parking garage, go to second floor of the parking garage, then walk across the sky-bridge to the glass door. This is a secured building and this door is LOCKED, but we will begin letting people in 15 minutes (30min for first day of class) before class is set to begin!

There is NO CHILDCARE provided for this training, and children under the age of 18 are not able to attend due to the sensitive nature of the training.


The Alliance has changed our handouts policy to be more environmentally responsible.  All the handouts that you will need during class for activities will be provided to you.  However, additional resources that may be helpful will no longer be printed.  Instead, they are accessible to you  ( https://sharepoint.washington.edu/ACWE/Caregiver%20Core%20Training/Curriculum/In-class%20handouts.pdf )  so that you may access them at any time to save or print. 


For training-related questions please contact your Child Welfare Trainer, Kebbie Green, at kgreen10@uw.edu or call 509-362-1336.
