Abstract

A true understanding of science does not come from a lecture or a textbook, but from being actively engaged in scientific and engineering design processes. While teaching science using scientific and engineering design processes to solve real life problems is often associated with older students, it is possible in the kindergarten classroom. In this workshop participants will learn how the careful design and implementation of a science and engineering unit for kindergarten students with diverse abilities engages young students in critical thinking and problem solving.
