Bridging the gap

Little Scientists has helped bridge the gap to a better understanding of STEM. The ongoing support and connection since day one has always been there, further motivating ways to improve how we incorporate STEM into our services. This is creating a better learning journey for not only our future generations but us as educators, as we look at ways to encourage and challenge ways of thinking and gaining more knowledge.

I felt inspired and excited

What I enjoyed most about the Optics workshop was that it was very hands on. The small group collaborative learning allowed us to explore light, colour and shadows together through different activities, and then discuss our investigations in a relaxed and friendly environment. At the end of the workshop I felt inspired and excited to bring back some new ideas to the centre. A big Thank You to our wonderful and helpful trainers Brooke and Gemma!

Training was brilliant

I'm a Family Day Care educator with over ten years in the industry and always looking for new ways to inspire and further development my current best practice.

Earlier last month I took part in a Little Scientists Training session about Water and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) This day of training was brilliant.

I connected with other educators, discussed ideas and examples of water STEM experiences. We got hands-on experience drawing on our children's ages, challenges and understanding of STEM and built on effective ways to provide experiences, and documenting using the inquiry cycle and ELYF.

The handouts and training provided were very effective. I really would highly recommend others. Thank you.

Mathematics in-service – opened my eyes to ideas

I just want to say what a wonderful facilitator Lena is, she discussed the topic with enthusiasm and great examples - hoping I will be half as good as she is when I start teaching others. (Looking forward to doing more topics with her). We had the pleasure of taking part in the mathematics in-service yesterday and it confirmed the experiences I already do, gave me the language to use and ideas to extend, as well as opening up my eyes to other ideas and ways to encourage critical thinking and promote exploration with a focus on mathematics.
