STEAM CONCEPTS FOR INFANTS AND TODDLERS NICHOLE A. BAUMGART LINDA R. KROLL STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) is an extension of the original STEM efforts with the goal of supporting the innate creativity and innovation all children possess. STEAM Concepts for Infants and Toddlers serves as a platform for educators to observe and facilitate infants’ and toddlers’ natural curiosities around STEAM concepts. It discusses tangible, rich STEAM learning environments for children from birth to age three and introduces where this learning can go next as children transition into the preschool years. Using illustrated vignettes and case studies to narrate stories of infant and toddler STEAM concept explorations this book covers how very young children problem-solve daily dilemmas related to STEAM concepts in play and builds a foundation of STEAM for infants and toddlers.
