Engaging in block play provides a vast array of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematical (STEM) concepts.

This workshop will focus on STEM concepts that can be addressed through block play experiences and specifically emphasize strategies to enhance and increase potential for mathematical talk. Participants will engage in reflective activities that identify opportunities to explore STEM concepts through applications of developmentally appropriate practice. This workshop is designed to aid participants in designing environments that promote STEM thinking through block play.
