Ready, Set, STEM! A Huge Success!

We were thrilled to share our Ready At Five School Readiness Symposium with over 235 participants on Tuesday, December 6, 2016 at Turf Valley Conference Center!  Keynote Heidi Schweingruber, PhD began the day by enlightening us with "What STEM Looks Like in Early Childhood" and Michael Eisenklam and Bryan Shumaker of Carroll County Public Schools "Modeled the STEM Standards of Practice" with a hands on activity.  The day concluded with two sets of fabulous concurrent workshops and a Gallery Walk featuring 17 different participants who shared their STEM ideas. Please visit our Symposia Archive to access the handouts from the day. Thank you to everyone who participated!
