The science K12 world has been abuzz with a few hot trends over the last few year:

  1. Maker Spaces
  2. Robotics
  3. 3D printing
  4. Coding

These tends in science education have been huge, even in elementary school. Unfortunately, nobody seems to have really figured out the youngest grades and how to get kids started in science in the schools where there are so few resources. The problem is really human resources, the whole class instructors that typically teach in the younger grade (K, 1st, and 2nd grade) just do not have the science background to feel comfortable teaching it. More on this next week (I’m trying to revise this blog!).
