Below we share our thoughts on pedagogy and inquiry-based STEM learning. Join us in investigating questions like: How can I provide good mathematical learning when my own experience of the subject in school was so negative? Or how does STEM help to grow children’s self-confidence?

If you are interested in more in-depth discussions of a variety of topics relating to early childhood education, have a look at our upcoming STEM Hour webinars.
