Science, you, and the NAEYC Early Childhood Science Interest Forum (ECSIF)

  • 1.  Science, you, and the NAEYC Early Childhood Science Interest Forum (ECSIF)

    The Early Childhood Science Interest Forum (ECSIF) is a NAEYC interest forum for those who are new to science and those who are passionate about teaching it-for the purpose of creating a national dialogue around issues related to science teaching and learning.

    The annual meetings are held at the national conference and all are welcomed! Sometimes there are snacks but there is always great conversation and sharing of resources. There are 3 co-facilitators who share responsibility for communication, but members and former facilitators contribute too.

    After the conferences you can find the ECSIF participants here on Hello, and also on Facebook and Twitter.

    Look for updates and contribute your own to share resources and 
    opportunities for learning!

    See you online or at a conference,
    Peggy (former co-facilitator)
