News & Highlights

PwC announces National Strategic Partnership with Little Scientists Australia.

Little Scientists Australia is excited and proud to announce that we have been chosen by PwC for a strategic relationship. As a not-for-profit organisation with the overarching objective of making high quality education accessible to all children we strongly identify with PwCs purpose ‘of building trust in society and solving important problems’.

‘We need better STEM content and skills development in the early years of education but it can be difficult to get support for spending because the economic payback doesn’t happen until the individual is through the education system and earning a wage. We’re working with Little Scientists to address the problem at the start’
PwC Managing Partner and STEM leader, Tony Peake.

📣🏡 Little Scientists House 🏡📣

It was sad to say goodbye last week to Jennifer, the director of the wonderful Little Scientists House, Pinjarra Early Years Pre-school. Thankfully Jennifer is planning on moving to a different role, still within Early Childhood.

It was lovely to meet Jacqui Tjiong, the new director. Look forward to working with you in the future Jacqui 😊

🤓🌋 'How do volcanoes work?' - as an educator you've probably heard this question before.

A great way to investigate is an experiment using bicarbonate soda and vinegar (a little bit of detergent helps too) to help show what an eruption looks like, even though it's not actually how volcanoes work.

Use this experiment as a spring board into a real investigation with the children, i.e. find some information from your local library or watch suitable videos online. Go further and investigate where we can find different examples of pressure, think of water and air.

Remember to record and document your findings; it’s all part of the process. And have loads of fun with the children! #AskEvanLS🤓

📣💥Little Scientists Workshops💥📣

Photos from a recent Little Scientists Engineering workshop. Participants explored forces and effects by building balancers and catapults. With all the new discoveries we made (and with quite a few projectiles flying around) it was an exciting workshop.
