Spring Professional Development Loose Parts to Promote STEAM Workshops

Loose Parts to Promote STEAM:  Loose parts are alluring objects that children can move, manipulate, control, and change within their play.  Learn how loose parts promote STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) concepts. The workshop will cover in detail how loose parts support scientific thinking, engage children in mathematical and engineering concepts, enhance play and artistic abilities, and empower children to be creative. Participants will explore a wide variety of loose parts; they will be inspired to support open-ended learning, enhance play, and empower children. The value of loose parts, as a vehicle to engage children in the wonder of science, engineering, art and math will be emphasized.
