WHY SPONSOR US:
A big thank you to our generous sponsors
Dyson have partnered with Little Scientists to sponsor all STEM Air workshops, Australia wide. Additionally, they are providing air workshop participants with a Dyson air purifier, to further help educators and children investigate and learn more about the air around them.
At our 2019, 2 day Little Scientists early-years STEM conference, a leading Dyson engineer presented and delivered hands-on workshops to over 100 early-years educators and directors about the engineering process, air quality and the importance of developing STEM skills in children.
Toyota Community Trust
Little Scientists and the Toyota Community Trust have collaborated on a variety of early STEM projects since 2018. They have committed to financially supporting Little Scientists in delivering in-service workshops to services with limited access to high-quality professional development STEM workshops in regional and low-income areas of Melbourne.
In the first year of this partnership, up to 240 early childhood educators in the Wyndham City Council area and up to 200 educators in the Albury-Wodonga council area benefited from this specialised professional development.
PwC provides strategic support after Little Scientists completed the firm’s 12 month 21st Century Mind Accelerator program aimed at rapidly scaling some of Australia’s most promising STEM education initiatives.
The program is backed by the Office of the Chief Scientist and some of Australia’s largest corporates, including: Google, NAB, BP and GE. Little Scientists were selected by a panel of PwC leaders for their potential to have a significant impact on STEM education in Australia, as well as their potential for scale with PwC support.
