ONLINE: Little Scientists Free Virtual Incursions
National Science Week virtual incursions with Little Scientists
Simultaneous morning tea — Inspiring children to explore and discover food
“What crunches louder, carrots or cucumber?” “Does the colour of a capsicum or tomato make a difference to its taste?” “How big is the biggest orange?” – Food is so much more than sustenance. We all know of its emotional and cultural significance, but how can it play a part in enhancing children’s hands-on STEM learning?
For National Science Week, we invite parents, early childhood educators, teachers and children to join us for morning tea to explore this very diverse and interesting topic in a playful way. Our presenters will explore the food we eat for morning tea, guide you through fun investigations and share some surprising observations with you.
We sincerely thank Inspiring Australia NSW for awarding us a grant to run these virtual incursions for the community free of charge. The link to join the webinar will be sent to you the day before the event.
Presented by Little Scientists Australia, a not-for-profit professional development program for early childhood educators and teachers, and an initiative of FROEBEL Australia.
FROEBEL’s Little Scientists run workshops for early childhood educators and teachers to empower them to implement age-appropriate STEM exploration in their curriculum for young children.
