Teachers Learn STEM Activites for Very Young ChildrenCOLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Jun. 23, 2010) -- Teachers enrolled in this week's Space Foundation class "PreK-2 Early Childhood Space Exploration," are spending time in the classroom and out-of-doors, learning age-appropriate, hands-on activities they can immediately use with their students. The class resulted from a new partnership between the Space Foundation and Colorado State University (CSU) - Pueblo, and is held on the CSU - Pueblo campus. 

The teachers will use their students' natural curiousity about the world around them to encourage a lasting interest in science.
Activities to date have included a study of comets, sunlight, the effects of weathering and erosion, impact craters, and a discussion on water pollution by guest lecturer Jeff Besse, stormwater specialist for Colorado Springs public works/city engineering.
