Engineering with Nature: Communicating through Construction Play

Wednesday, 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm $15

Join ChildCare Education Institute on August 25 for “Engineering with Nature: Learning and Communicating through Construction Play” to learn practice strategies that support engineering play with natural and human-made materials.

Construction Play

Children communicate competency, ideas, and emotions through block building and other three-dimensional work. Nature learning and universal design experts, Tina Reeble and Kirsten Haugen will share research, classroom stories, and practical suggestions to support engineering play with natural and human-made materials for building.

What You Will Learn

Participants will:

    • learn how to support children’s explorations and competencies through engineering play in nature-based settings,
    • the power of visual-spatial communication through the language of building,
    • how to set the stage, indoors and out, for supportive spaces.
