Little Scientists Educator Conference

Sonic Boom – Let’s make some noise about STEM!

This year’s conference will take place over two days and discuss all things STEM and early childhood learning. The program has been turned up a notch with inspiring speakers, exciting breakout sessions and informative workshops.

Our opening keynote speaker is Professor Lisa Harvey-Smith, Australia’s Women in STEM Ambassador, who will highlight the importance of starting STEM early in a child’s life. These skills are essential for developing critical thinking, creativity and problem-solving skills. After all, they’re facing a world that’s changing faster than ever before – it’s up to us to make sure they have the skills to shape their future.

Also speaking at Sonic Boom are well-known actor, musician and author Justine Clarke, Dyson Engineer Tom Mogridge and Leanne Gibbs, our MC. As a special treat, Justine will be performing two songs, followed by a photo opportunity for attendees during the morning tea break.
