The article How Serious Play Leads to Breakthrough Innovation describes various business breakthroughs that came about from intentional, unabashed play in the work space. The sculptor Richard Serra explains, "In play you don’t foresee an end product. It allows you to suspend judgment. Often the solution to one problem sparks a possibility for another set of problems. . ." STEM activities which allow for deep play can bridge the gap between the "business of play" engaged in by young children exploring their world and the creative problem solving that professional engineers employ. Learning about the world through curiosity and experimentation can spark unforeseen insights or illuminate previously hidden connections to solve future challenges. This, of course, is our ultimate goal as STEM educators!
