The STEM Innovation for Inclusion in Early Education Center engages young children with disabilities in STEM activities.

Young children have a natural capacity to engage with activities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), and the positive benefits for these growing minds are boundless.

But, children with disabilities are often excluded from these brain-building activities. These children miss opportunities for social growth and brain development, as well as the joy of discovery and curiosity.

UNC’s Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute received a $7.25 million grant to develop and enhance knowledge on engagement in STEM and implement high-quality technical assistance and professional development to facilitate the inclusion of young children with disabilities in STEM activities.

The result? The STEM Innovation for Inclusion in Early Education (STEMIE) Center.
