Faculty and master-level students in the Early Childhood Education program will merge Brain-Based Learning coursework with STEM applications throughout the camp.

The camp will be held 9:30 a.m. -11:30 a.m. via Zoom to teach and play using makerspace creations, tinkering with recyclables, unplugged coding activities, and a scavenger hunt.

The purpose of the Digital Days is to help young children and their parents to engage in brain-based learning strategies and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) activities at home on a daily or weekly basis in order to become effective digital citizens and learners in this new digital age.

Using brain-based learning and STEAM frameworks, parents will be supported to develop a Tinker Station or Makerspace at home to use with their children. Through a collaborative online connection, parents will learn about brain development, how their children remain safe online, and adopt brain-based learning strategies while contributing to an online community from their own home.

Each camp is unique to the participants since it is powered by each groups’ creative ideas.
