Event description

This two-hour online workshop is held in the lead up to the National Science Week 2024 (10-18 August) and aims to support early childhood educators and teachers to explore this year’s theme, “Species Survival — More Than Just Sustainability”, in a positive and age-appropriate way. After much consideration, we’ve chosen to look at this year’s theme through the lens of citizen science and children as powerful agents of change 

Citizen science provides meaningful opportunities for children to collect data, run experiments, document findings, and engage and share reports with local community and environmental groups. In this online two-hour workshop, educators will learn how to introduce children to the world of citizen science, promote environmental awareness, and design simple and engaging citizen science projects.  You will gain practical ideas — like monitoring local waterways and wildlife, tracking weather patterns, nature scavenger hunts — that empower children to lead their own explorations and make a positive impact on the world around them. 

This online workshop is aligned with the EYLF 2.0 and aims to be as interactive as possible by inviting educators attending live to ask questions, share ideas, and enthusiastically engage.  

Purchasing a ticket allows you to tune in live or via a recording. While we strongly encourage you to attend live so that you can participate in the conversation, a recording will be shared via email following the event and can be viewed for 3 days after the email is sent. This workshop will be held on:

Tuesday 30 July 2024

Time zones: 3-5pm (AEST), 1-3pm (AWST), 2:30-4:30pm (ACST) 

This online workshop will introduce the concepts, methods, and skills of inquiry-based STEM education to early childhood educators and teachers. Together, we will explore a range of simple techniques to cultivate children’s skills and excitement for STEM exploration and you will come away with a suite of hands-on STEM provocations to enrich your practice in your service or classroom.
