Regents' Center for Early Developmental Education

2017 NAEYC Ramps and Pathways Presentation

Sherri Peterson, Program Coordinator and the Regents' Center will present Ramps and Pathways: A fun integration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics at the NAEYC 2017 Annual Conference & Expo in Atlanta, GA on November 15, 2017 from 8:30-11:30 am. Participants learned about developmentally appropriate ways to support children's inquiry by capitalizing on their interests and curiosity and how to use the Ramps and Pathways materials to promote children's development of practical understanding of force and motion, design, and engineering habits of mind. Videotapes of children using the materials in classrooms and teachers interacting with children will guide participants in setting up the environment, intervening in ways that promote higher-order thinking, and supporting children's active investigation.
