THE LITTLE SCIENTISTS PROJECT IS SUPPORTED AND FUNDED BY THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND TRAINING THROUGH THE NATIONAL INNOVATION AND SCIENCE AGENDA.


PwC announces National Strategic Partnership with Little Scientists Australia.

Little Scientists Australia is excited and proud to announce that we have been chosen by PwC for a strategic relationship. As a not-for-profit organisation with the overarching objective of making high quality education accessible to all children we strongly identify with PwCs purpose ‘of building trust in society and solving important problems’.

We truly believe that we can change the educational landscape of Australia together with our early childhood professionals and strong strategic partners. We know collaboration is key to our success and long-term impact. So, it is with great excitement that we are partnering with PwC.

‘We need better STEM content and skills development in the early years of education but it can be difficult to get support for spending because the economic payback doesn’t happen until the individual is through the education system and earning a wage. We’re working with Little Scientists to address the problem at the start’
PwC Managing Partner and STEM leader, Tony Peake.

About Us

Little Scientists Australia is a not-for-profit professional development program for early childhood educators and teachers combining inquiry-based learning with age-appropriate STEM exploration (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).  

The overarching goal of the Little Scientists STEM program is to improve access to high quality education for all children from an early age and to ensure the competitiveness of Australia’s workforce in the future:

  • The program has been developed to amplify children’s natural curiosity for STEM and to ignite their passion for lifelong learning.
  • The Little Scientists workshops spark teachers’ and educators’ interest in STEM, build their confidence and encourage daily implementation of playful scientific exploration together with the children.
  • Every service and school in Australia that works with children from 3 to 6 years of age can join our program and can become an accredited Little Scientists House, ensuring their professional dedication to early STEM education.

The Little Scientists program has been highlighted by the OECD in their “Innovative Teaching for Effective Learning” (2012) report and is an excellent tool to meet a range of requirements of the National Quality Framework (NQF) and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).
