Discussing STEAM, LEGO, and Early Education on TeacherCast

The Lego Education headquarters in Denmark invited me, my colleague Myrna, and Kate Leiss to discuss our work with Steam Park and STEAM in schools and with families. Research has indicated that children need STEM experiences and a solid foundation starting at three years old (source 1, source 2). So, we talked about 21st-century skills, the importance of beginning in Pre-K, and teaching these skills through twelfth grade.
