In this two-hour online workshop, early childhood educators and teachers will learn to introduce forensic science concepts to children in a playful and age-appropriate way. We’ll explore simple and engaging activities and provocations that promote children’s observational skills, critical thinking, and problem-solving. For example, fingerprint analysis, deciphering coded messages, exploring colour chromatography to reveal hidden colours, or going on a nature-inspired scavenger hunt to investigate footprints or animal tracks.
Forensic science is a captivating topic through which to develop children’s foundational STEM skills and love of scientific inquiry. It provides rich opportunities to support children to recognise pattens, follow clues, engage in deductive reasoning, draw conclusions, and work as a team. By embracing their role as detectives, children are also empowered to lead their own investigations, document and report findings, and build confidence in STEM.
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.
