Introducing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to younger generations has become a key priority for many researchers, educators, and policy makers. Dr Mia Dubosarsky of Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in Massachusetts, Dr Florencia Anggoro of the College of the Holy Cross (Worcester, MA), Dr Melissa-Sue John of WPI, and colleagues, in partnership with the Worcester Head Start program, have developed an innovative curriculum, Seeds of STEM, aimed at fostering problem-solving skills associated with STEM-related disciplines in preschool children.
