Engineering Excitement for Young Investigators!
Presented by: Berkshire County Head Start
Strand: Early Education
Berkshire County Head Start’s Engineering Excitement for Young Investigators showcases the work of preschool teachers to encourage children to explore design challenges to solve real world problems proposed by teachers and of their own invention. Children have the opportunity to use their creative approaches to learning and social-emotional skills as they work together to puzzle through situations that promote curiosity and innovation. Classroom explorations of gravity, slope, and balance are extended through collaborative activities with community organizations, such as the local museums, to allow for the application of skills and concepts within their own community.
