Children are naturally attracted to light, to sparkle, to shadows, to colors and movement. How can we explore light with the children we care for, and encourage their deep thinking about these phenomena?

Together we will:

  • Explore children’s natural attraction to STEAM through the lens of light and Shadow play
  • Share light play activities, documentation, and resources as we deepen the complexity of these explorations
  • Inspire ourselves to try new materials, new questions, and new provocations
  • Meet with other educators to share ideas, challenges, and successes
