Full Session Description

What is STEAM?

STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art and math. Words like science and engineering can make some of us a little nervous, but there's no reason to be. The Recycle Your Way to Steam activities are designed to be accessible for both kids and adults!

The National Head Start Association has partnered with Lakeshore Learning Materials to provide easy and fun activities that introduce young children to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Head Start teachers can incorporate these play-based activities into classrooms and target multiple domains from the new Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework—including Approaches to Learning, Scientific Reasoning, Social and Emotional Development, and Mathematics Development. Thousands of children have already used these engaging activities!

What is in the Activity Guide?

The activity guide is full of ideas to help you facilitate a Recycle Your Way to Steam event at your local Head Start program! From how to engage your community to what materials you need, the activity guide has it all!

Who is this meant for?

Join the 20,000 Head Start kids who have participated across the country! Recycle Your Way to STEAM is designed for children - plus it's tons of fun and completely accessible for adults.
