Diving into STEM – Inspiring children to explore and discover
Young children are filled with questions about the world they live in: “Why do cats have fur?” “Why don’t bees make square honeycomb?” “Why is snow white but the ocean blue?” – Have you ever wondered how to answer their big questions?
STEM education is so much more than factual answers to complex questions and Little Scientists will show you how easy and uncomplicated it can be. In a series of live webinars, Little Scientists will introduce the concepts, methods and skills to early childhood teachers, educators, parents, librarians, youth workers, primary school teachers – indeed, anyone who is interested in developing skills and enthusiasm for STEM inquiry in children (or themselves!).
We will show you some simple techniques to cultivate children’s skills and excitement for STEM exploration, and our hands-on session will enrich your repertoire of STEM activities. You will have an opportunity to virtually meet and interact with other STEM enthusiasts, share experiences and become part of a community that supports children in becoming competent and confident problem solvers and learners for life.
