Share the Science®: STEM exposes viewers to a virtual community garden where they will learn about science, technology, engineering, and math through the eyes of a young child. Created in response to discussions at the 2016 Early Childhood STEM Conference in California (ECSTEM), where teachers shared their frustrations with explaining the benefits of early STEM education. Using translational research from the FrameWorks Institute on how Americans think about STEM, this new tool is designed to help educators and advocates for early STEM learning share their perspectives with greater success. Share the Science: STEM is a virtual reality experience that requires a viewer like Google Cardboard. Readiness Learning is proud to recommend and support our STEM colleagues at Share the Science.

Natural Phenomena: Awe Inspiring & Trauma Inducing in Early Childhood
Peggy Ashbrook, The Early Years Columnist, Science and Children and author, invited Carrie Lynne Draper to guest blog in writing about supporting children affected by natural disasters. As summer ended, some children in the United States had traumatic experiences due to natural phenomena. Forest fires in the western states, flooding and hurricane damage in Texas, Florida, Georgia and US Virgin Islands has displaced families and schools. Peggy & Carrie provide resources for parents, educators and those supporting young children. http://nstacommunities.org/blog/2017/09/13/natural-phenomena-awe-inspiring-and-trauma-inducing/ (Photo: Courtesy of NSTA Communities.org/blog/PAshbrook)
