Pattern ABC in Tanzania – video

We hope this finds you well and sheltering safely.

Please enjoy the simple joy of children’s learning with our 10 minute video on the Pattern ABC Tanzania Pilot.

Spatial skills are the engine for STEM and STEAM learning, and are nowhere in the US school curriculum.

We intend to change that.

2000 = STEM

2010 = STEAM

2020 = SPATIAL is the new STEM.

In mid April, we’ll announce stay at home activities—making from recycled packaging and I Spy Patterns outdoor walks — for preschool and elementary children to keep making and keep noticing patterns in the world around them.

To your health,

Alex and Vijal
