A Look Inside The Teaching Lab at the 2015 ECSTEM Conference

Earlier this month, community leaders, educators, practitioners and researchers came together for the Early Childhood Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (ECSTEM) Conference in Costa Mesa. The three-day event featured nationally known keynote speakers, panel discussions, workshops, exhibitions and hands-on demonstrations of ECSTEM instruction.

A highlight from the annual event was The Teaching Lab, a typical early childhood classroom set up on-site. The arrangement gave teachers practical tools and ideas to easily incorporate science, math, engineering and technology into their own classrooms. The set-up showed educators how to make these subjects approachable and exciting for young children with cost-effective ideas and projects.

If you were unable to attend the 2015 conference, here are a variety of photos to give you an inside look at The Teaching Lab. For a full gallery of images from the event, click here.
