ECHOS: Moving Science from the Sidelines to the Front Line

The Museum’s Early Childhood Hands-On Science (ECHOS) project, funded by the U.S. Department of Education Institute for Education Sciences, and in collaboration with the University of Miami and Miami-Dade County Head Start, is a research-based, comprehensive early childhood science curriculum and professional development program designed to give young children a “head start” in science and science learning. It makes sense then that the Museum’s ECHOS team, led by Senior VP of Education Dr. Judy Brown, is in Washington, D.C. this week to lead a session at the National Head Start Association Conference. During the session, entitled ECHOS: Move Science from the Sidelines to the Front Line to Help Your Students Have Fun with Science in Your Classroom, participants will become familiar with hands-on science lessons and related mathematics, language/literacy, and creative arts activities to engage young children, as well as gain understanding of useful professional development practices. This jump start for educators can be a key to moving science from the sidelines to the front lines of early childhood education.
