STEAM Sprouts

Spring 2023 STEAM Sprouts

The early childhood years, from birth to age 5, have long been accepted as the most critical point in neurological or brain development. Studies by the National Science Teachers Association show that young children learn through active exploration and the drive to observe, interact, discover, and explore is inherent in their development. It is during these years that many in the education community believe that evidence-based STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) curricula should begin, setting children on a path to develop a love of scientific inquiry. In addition to developing an interest and knowledge base for STEAM and enhanced inquiry skills, experts say that science instruction improves abilities in subjects outside of STEAM, including literacy, language learning, and critical thinking.

The Petroleum Museum is excited to present STEAM Sprouts engaging preschool children ages 4-5 in STEAM-based curriculum and challenges. Spring 2023 will feature content centered around LEGO Simple Machines!

Pre-registration is required. The cost per student for each 6-week session is $80 for Petroleum Museum members and $100 for Non-Members. Get your membership now by clicking here. For more information, contact the Education Department at 432-683-4403
