The presentation shows that 2-9 year olds can have fun with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Encouraging a multi-sensory approach to learning, the curriculum presented includes biological concepts such as digestion, properties of magnets, using simple machines, geometric shapes and graphs.
Many of these concepts can be taught to blind students working side by side with their sighted peers using the same materials. Some activity materials include household items and “dollar” store purchases. Children learn through active participation, rather than passive listening. Exposure to STEM at an early age leads to success in future classes.
