First early learning STEM class in Anoka-Hennepin a hit with families
Kids as young as 3 learned about structures, simple machines and systems in the first ever Anoka-Hennepin Early Childhood Family Education science, technology, engineering and math class.
Two sessions of the 15-week class ran this fall, and 15 students between the ages of 3 and 5 were enrolled. Parents attended class with their children.
Jett Stevens, 4, proudly showed mom and grandma how a marble was able to roll down an incline plane and through a pathway system of paper plates and toilet paper rolls to reach his milk carton structure during a classroom celebration Jan. 14.
“This is his favorite class,” said Jett’s mom, Amy Stevens. “His little brain is always trying to figure things out. This is his language.”
