Little Scientists Australia Online

Notice: NESA update for NSW teachers

NESA will no longer endorse providers or register professional development in the way it has done in the past.

Effective from 30 November 2020, the endorsement of all NESA endorsed providers is cancelled and registered courses are deregistered. In July 2020 a NESA internal review was completed and the Minister announced stricter criteria and mandated priorities for teachers’ professional learning. NESA has released the Accreditation of Professional Development Courses Policy that will immediately replace the existing Endorsement of Professional Development Providers and Courses Policy (February 2019).

In 2021 Little Scientists Australia, along with all other previously endorsed providers will be able to begin a new process to apply for NESA accreditation. Until then, Little Scientists courses can be still be uploaded to eTAMS by teachers under Elective PD hours (previously known as Teacher Identified hours).

WEBINAR series: Inspire STEM – Explore, Play, Reflect

Young children are filled with questions about the world they live in: “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?

In a series of live webinars, 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. Inspire STEM – Explore, Play, Reflect [pdf]

Good to know... This series includes 3 webinars held on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday of the same week.

Completing this online webinar series will contribute 3 hours for online workshops of ACT Teacher Quality Institute (TQI) registered PD.
