Event description

Inspire STEM: Space

Blast off in time for Space Week. Come explore space with us – from Earth to the beyond. You will be delighted and inspired by our hands-on, inquiry-based approach to STEM learning.

Young children are full of questions about the world they live in: “Can you blow bubbles in Space?” “What’s the Moon made of?” “Why do astronauts float?” – Have you ever wondered how to answer their big questions?

This interactive workshop consists of ONE 2 hour session and you’ll receive a materials list to prepare in advance made up of everyday items in your home or service. 

This Inspire STEM is happening in your time zone:  

Thursday 14 September: 4-6pm (AEST), 2-4pm (AWST), 3.30-5.30pm(ACST) 

This online workshop is part of the Little Scientists Inspire STEM series, which will introduce the concepts, methods, and skills of inquiry-based STEM education to early childhood educators and teachers. Together, we will explore a range of simple techniques to cultivate children’s skills and excitement for STEM exploration and you will come away with a suite of hands-on STEM provocations to enrich your practice in your service or classroom.
