STEMIE: Innovation for Inclusion in Early Education

Our Purpose

The STEM Innovation for Inclusion in Early Education (STEMI2E2) Center aims to:

  • Develop and enhance the knowledge base on engagement in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) learning opportunities for young children with disabilities (O-5);
  • Implement high-quality technical assistance and professional development to increase engagement for young children with disabilities in STEM opportunities; and
  • Engage partners and stakeholders from diverse disciplines and industry in work to increase the inclusion of young children with disabilities in early high-quality STEM learning experiences.
