STEM HOUR - 8 September 2022

Great Barrier Reef corals are bleached, about a quarter of global fish stocks are overfished and the Great Pacific garbage patch is twice as big as Texas, containing up to 1.8 trillion pieces of debris. Can engineering play a role in creating a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future? Humans are hard-wired for problem-solving, and engineering has been a means for finding solutions since the first humans wandered the Earth.

In this webinar, our panel will discuss how children’s imaginations can be funnelled into hands-on engineering projects that aim to provide solutions for real-life environmental problems. Your children are worried about the ocean’s wildlife being exposed to plastic pollution? Can they invent an ocean cleaning machine? Our panel will share practical ideas on how you can embed the ‘E’ into your inquiry-based STEM approach.

STEM HOUR - 13 October 2022

Mathematical concepts are everywhere around us. How do traffic jams form? How can we share a pizza evenly? Can you discover patterns in musical compositions?

What comes to your mind when you think of maths in the first five years of life? In this webinar, our panel will help you broaden your mathematical horizon, evaluate your own relationship with maths and provide you with a hands-on approach for fostering children’s mathematical thinking.

STEM HOUR - 10 November 2022

What is the connection between STEM learning and language development? Both happen naturally and spontaneously every day, and they enrich each other. Inquiry-based STEM learning is a powerful tool for language and literacy development, kindling children’s joy for communicating with others.

In this webinar, our panel will align the principles of language development and STEM learning, provide language development tools that will foster your children’s curiosity and self-expression and share examples of meaningful communication through STEM learning.
