8:30 AM  –  3:30 PM

Embrace a mindset for making and tinkering through engaging, playful experiences led by nationally recognized educator and author Cate Heroman and Knock Knock Children’s Museum’s Maker Shop Specialist Alexandra Pearson. Together we’ll investigate how tinkering and making experiences support fundamental STEM thinking and learning for young children. After this introduction to the fundamentals of tinkering, we’ll dive into NAEYC’s book, Making and Tinkering With STEM: Solving Design Challenges With Young Children. You’ll learn how tinkering, making, and engineering are related and how each has an important role in the early childhood setting.
