Communicating Effectively On the Need for Early STEM Education
July 11, 2016 | From the field | Policy Research, MacArthur Award for Creative & Effective Institutions

FrameWorks Institute, a recipient of the MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions, conducted a study on communicating effectively about the need for early STEM education and reshaping some entrenched cultural beliefs so people are more likely to understand the need and support this type of education. In a White House symposium on early STEM learning, founder Susan Nall Bales detailed the study’s findings and called on advocates for early childhood education to use communications science to make a more powerful case for science, technology, engineering, and math education for young children.
