Abstract

The importance of reading to preschool and kindergarten aged children has been well documented. This paper presents in-progress work developing a methodology for assessing the engineering and STEM content in books intended for this age group. Of particular interest is whether the STEM content is portrayed accurately. We present a sample investigation and rubric, focusing on robots.
