Early Education STEM Center to host open house Monday

The Early Education STEM Center will host an open house art show in the lobby of Corbly Hall, Monday, May 6, from noon to 4:00 pm. The Marshall community is invited to tour the displays, which will include clay sculptures, canvas paintings, quilt work, and creative pieces from reusable materials of three-, four- and five-year-olds.

The Early Education STEM Center is a collaborative effort of MU’s June Harless Center for Rural Educational Research and Development, the College of Education and Cabell County Schools. It is designed to be a model program of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) preschool education while focusing on arts integration.

Influenced by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education, the center promotes an exchange between teacher and child in which both explore, experiment, and solve problems and questions relevant to daily life. The center also serves Marshall’s education pre-service students with opportunities for practicum hours.
