New Erikson STEM programs highlighted by press

New STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programs honored by the Obama administration were featured in Chicago Inno and edscoop. Leaders from Erikson’s Technology in Early Childhood Center and Early Math Collaborative were invited to participate in an Early Learning STEM symposium at The White House and share with participants details of the new programs that will reach thousands of young children in classrooms, libraries, and museums.

“Technology offers powerful tools for learning through inquiry, exploration, and discovery and as catalysts for learning in the STEM disciplines. Our approach puts STEM in the context of the whole child by connecting technology and STEM with social emotional learning,” Chip Donohue, Ph.D., director of Erikson’s Technology in Early Childhood Center, told Chicago Inno.
