STEAM Resources

The National Center on Early Childhood Development, Teaching, and Learning in partnership with the Office of Head Start is going “full STEAM ahead” with children and families. Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) learning happens naturally everyday as children explore, play, and try new things. Teachers and family child care providers support this learning when they provide feedback to deepen children’s understanding of STEAM concepts and ideas and help children develop more complex language skills.

Below you can access online resources as well as download additional PDF resources to support STEAM thinking and learning. Review the list below of the included resources to share with education staff and families.
