  1. Katie T. Christiansen

    Engineering comes naturally to many children, so it’s important for all early childhood professionals to support and extend this. Engineering Explorations in Early Childhood Education is a great foundational course about engineering. It clearly shows the steps of the engineering design process. I recommend this course to help educators get excited while supporting children to “think like an engineer.”
