Big Deal Media: 3 Ways to Build a Case for (and Win) Early Learning STEAM Robotics Grants
In this blog, “3 Ways to Build a Case for (and Win) Early Learning STEAM Robotics Grants” our director of curriculum and professional development, Jason Innes, shares his thoughts on bringing coding and robotics to young learners to support the development of computational thinking and invaluable STEAM skills.
The article reads in part:
With millions of dollars of ESSER funding (as well as other federal, state, and local grants) still available, the smartest edtech investments are the ones that meet the following criteria:
1. Are research-backed and deliver evidence-based solutions.
2. Provide flexible, ongoing professional development.
3. Offer hours of curriculum to support any subject.
Read on to dive into each of these points to prove the case for bringing coding and robotics into young learners’ hands to support development of computational thinking and invaluable science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) skills.
