UWM Studies Bretty Brinn's 'Be A Maker' Exhibit
One of the big challenges in our elementary schools today is getting more students interested in the STEM fields, or the study of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
But with all of the distractions and competing messages that bombard kids today, how do you ignite interest in these key fields that many believe are essential if our country is to remain competitive?
On this edition of UWM Today, learn about a fascinating, hands on project that is sparking the imagination of kids at a very young age. Host Tom Luljak speaks with Chris Lawson, assistant professor of Educational Psychology.
Lawson talks with UWM's collaboration with the Betty Brinn Children's Museum's Be a Maker program.
