  • I am so excited and want to learn more on how to be involved!  I LOVE STEM.  As an early childhood prekindergarten teacher in a blended classroom, I have seen how powerful and fun STEM activities are.  I also spent a month in China leading a STEM camp and a 3 day workshop for early childhood teachers on STEM.  Would love to share!  Thank you.  

    PS- HI TRACEY :)
