This chapter explicitly brings into focus the concept of imagination, and the future imagining and moral imagining that Jennifer Vadeboncour has introduced into the literature. There is a dual goal. The first goal is how early childhood educators resource their professional development of a Conceptual PlayWorld for the intentional teaching of STEM through the psychological function of imagination. The second goal is oriented to bringing forward girls’ imagining that STEM is for them and imagining a career in STEM. This chapter bookends the volume and solves the problem of how to bring STEM concepts into children’s play. This chapter also paves the way for a new research agenda centred on researching STEM within the field by early childhood education researchers working in collaboration with teachers who draw on different assumptions than those from outside of the field, and who take forward new thinking as we go into the future.
