Hi and welcome to the STEM4EC community, an initiative of STEMIE (STEM Innovation for Inclusion in Early Education) national center. We started this community as a way to engage you in exchanging ideas, personal narratives, and questions about including young children with disabilities in STEM learning. Whether you are an early childhood or early childhood special education practitioner, faculty, family member of a child with disabilities, or a STEM industry professional, this place is for you! We look forward to your participation.
