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 online workshops, Little Scientists will introduce the concepts, methods and skills to early childhood teachers and educators. 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.
Little Scientists is working on making our online content accessible for all. Our webinars and online workshops now have an option for participants to choose live transcriptions. All constructive feedback regarding the accessibility or usability of our website and services is welcome and will be carefully considered.
INSPIRE STEM - 2 & 9 August 2022 (2-part online workshop)
Are you ready for National Science Week? This year’s theme is Glass: more than meets the eye.
Let Little Scientists help you discover a world of illusions. Explore the world beyond the mirror, where nothing is as it seems. Deep dive into optical phenomena. Discover rainbows and sparkles and learn to spot those everyday optical opportunities. Where does the rainbow come from? What happens when you mix colours of lights? And what is the science behind those optical illusions that flood our social media feeds? How do glasses work?
With an emphasis on practical transfer into early childhood practice, our warm-up to National Science Week invites you to enjoy the ‘spectacle’ of optics.
INSPIRE STEM - 15 September & 22 September 2022 (2-part online workshop)
Come explore space with us – from Earth to the beyond. You will be delighted and inspired by our hands-on, inquiry-based approach to STEM learning.
Young children are full of questions about the world they live in: “Can you blow bubbles in space?” “What’s the Moon made of?” “Why do astronauts float?” – Have you ever wondered how to answer their big questions?
