The Technical Alphabet

Technical Literacy starts with the ABCs

www.STEMCenterUSA.com ›

Co-Authored and Self-Published a Childrens' Tech Book

Jumpstart Technology Literacy - Learning begins with the ABCs. This is the time children formulate an understanding of everything around them. The idea that STEM education comes later is incorrect. Understanding the world around us, invariably requires the understanding of the technology we use.

“We've arranged a global civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science & technology. We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science & technology. This is a prescription for disaster...sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces" -Dr. Carl Sagan
