STEM on the Street

STEM – science, technology, engineering, math – has been getting a lot of attention in this school year, so I wasn’t surprised to see it land on Sesame Street.

Simple “exploring” has become “investigating.” Young viewers will hear new vocabulary words like “pollinate” and “camouflage.”

Watching Elmo make a ramp can’t hurt, but what will help is to actually let kids experience STEM for themselves.
