Have you ever met a child who is not fascinated by water? From ice blocks to raindrops, children love to explore water from an early age.
This STEM learning opportunity will help you:
• Explore water with all your senses and discover how to make the wet stuff even more exciting
• Investigate the different aggregate states and test the solubility of different substances
• Understand the important role of inquiry-based learning and co-construction
• Implement our inquiry-based educational approach
• Benefit from the exchange with other educators and teachers
• Feel confident in unlocking the wonders of STEM
• Take home information and inspiration in the Water booklet and cards you receive.
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.
