This article is a really good read if you're interested in STEM education, and how important it is for early childhood education. Through the article I learned that young children usually show interest in STEM in their pre-k years while they are playing with blocks, and different puzzles. These skills are important for brain development. Early support of STEM education will support diverse growth across many areas. The technology revolution made it imperative for children to start learn STEM subjects. A normal misconception about STEM is that most educators and parents think that STEM is only available and taught, or even introduced to older generations. However, we must implement these interests in the respective subjects at an early age.
