About this workshop

During this seven-hour workshop, you will discover chemistry in everyday life. You will engage in chemical experiments exploring white substances, make a mess experimenting with carbon dioxide and find chemistry in your kitchen cupboard. The workshop will provide you with the principles of language development and help you understand the potential of STEM inquiry for language development.

By the end of this hands-on and interactive workshop, you will recognise opportunities for age-appropriate chemical exploration in your setting and know how you can support children’s language development through STEM inquiry.
