According to Alison Gopnik and team report that while we think that school for STEM learning, research has demonstrated that there are ample opportunities for STEM learning well before child care, preschool, and kindergarten.

The article dives into how our youngest learners are born wired to think along the scientific method. Babies tend to test hypothesis, just like scientists and like the neural networks we are developing for machines.

Their research shows that encouraging play, presenting interesting outcomes and asking for explanation encourages and nurtures this STEM ability.

Alison Gopnik has a video on this research, supporting TED talks, and a book on this topic as well.
