STEM HOUR - 2 February 2023
The building blocks of the universe – introducing atoms in the early years
Traditionally, students do not learn about atoms and molecules until they are well into high school, yet they are really important! Invisible to the naked eye, atoms are the building blocks of everything in the known universe and the basis of scientific understanding. So how do educators teach such abstract concepts to young children and make them more tangible?
In this webinar, special guest Ruben Meerman, aka the Surfing Scientist, will help you become familiar with basic atomic theory and show you how to make the intangible, tangible!
STEM HOUR - 2 March 2023
The big blue planet - our oceans & our unique home, Earth
Planet Earth’s oceans are the defining features that make our planet unique and habitable. This year, Sea Week is focusing on how all of earth’s living systems are intrinsically interconnected to the oceans.
Join this webinar and find out more about our big blue planet and introducing marine sciences in the early years. Our panel will discuss ways of celebrating the sea, whether you live by the oceans or not and give you practical ideas to implement STEM and ocean literacy learning in your classroom.
STEM HOUR - 6 April 2023
Supporting neurodivergent learners through STEM inquiry
Students with autism, ADHD and other learning disabilities are often left behind when it comes to STEM learning. With 30-40% of students in a classroom having neurodivergent brains, it is essential for educators to understand how to support ALL students in STEM education.
In this webinar, special guest Dr Lorien Parker, aka Dr Loz, will explain the different types of brains in your classrooms and will discuss why and how to best support neurodivergent learners with hands-on STEM inquiry.
