- uncover how communication, reflection and questioning enhance children’s ability to think about their own learning
- experience the effects of different prompts and questions on the learner
- explore air through touch, sound and movement
- benefit from the exchange with like-minded educators and reflect on your current practice
- feel confident in unlocking the wonders of STEM
Our early-STEM professional development program is designed to promote confidence in facilitating STEM* learning and empower those working with children aged 3-6 years to implement playful, inquiry-based experiences in educational programs.
Our engaging play-based workshops are designed with you, the teacher in mind and previous STEM knowledge is not required.
This workshop will provide you with a solid understanding and confidence in planning and implementing STEM learning in your service, and is delivered in partnership with Little Scientists Australia.
