Episode 4: Infants and toddlers, and how they experience STEM

Today our focus will be on what we are learning about infants and toddlers, and how they experience STEM - science, technology, engineering and mathematics - in early childhood settings.

We have Kulsum Chishti-Yonzon, one of the members of our Conceptual PlayLab who has been researching with us, this very special cultural age period. She will be sharing a conversation she had with one of the Educators who has helped in our research. It's a very special conversation which sheds light on the unique opportunity for supporting infants and toddlers  to experience STEM.

Our panel today:
