National Science Week 2022
We are getting ready for National Science Week! Are you?
The National Science Week theme of 2022 is based on the UN International Year of Glass. As in early childhood the focus may be on glasses, mirrors, reflection, light and colours, we have gathered here our resources designed to help you spot optics phenomena with the children in everyday life.
If you would like to learn more about hands-on ways to explore optics with the children, please join us for our online Inspire STEM workshop during National Science Week.
While free play in natural environments is important for their general skills development, children’s observations can also lead to fantastic STEM learning opportunities.
Out of three magical eggs hatch a diplodocus, a stegosaurus and a T-Rex. Find out how the witch Meg manages to avert disaster in this fun book.
Experience the magical overlap of past, present and future in the collages depicting the ancient forest and deepen your connection with nature.
Learn about the phases of the Moon through bold illustrations that compare the different shapes of the Moon to everyday objects.
This ancient story is a great opportunity for philosophical inquiry and exploring the senses. How is feeling different to seeing?
David is afraid of the sea. When is fear good for us and when is it bad? How can we overcome our fears? What are you afraid of?
In this parade of observers being observed, the rhythm, colours and animals will appeal to younger children and can raise some questions.
Rich in illustrations and full of wonder, this is a perfect book to spy with your little eyes while going on a journey through fairy tales.
Reminding us that we are happiest in our own skin, this story may also lead to an investigation of colour and camouflage in the animal world.
