Do you have an Early Childhood Education STEM program? Let the White House Know!

Promote your STEM program

One of the White House’s responsibilities is to invest in America’s future; something President Barack Obama recently brought up in a State of the Union address. To that end, the Office of the President, together with the Office of Science and Technology Policy, is encouraging local organizations to embrace STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education) advocacy for youth.

All forms of participation in STEM education are encouraged, from advocacy, to support for educators, and even non-traditional learning environments that promote STEM education such as zoos. Your organization could be featured at a White House event highlighting local educators.

If your organization promotes STEM literacy and education in children, such as with computer science education or astronomy nights, read on for information on how to contact the White House in order to have your organization featured in promotional materials and be invited to exclusive events.

Articles written by SensoryEdge are a combined effort of the SensoryEdge publishing staff. At SensoryEdge our focus is to educate, inform, and inspire each person caring for children to be and do their very best. It is not always easy and sometimes we don't take action (or we take the wrong action) because of a lack of understanding the real issues. We hope that the conversations that occur here will help in some small way better the lives of children, their families, and the professionals who work with them.
