Workshop: What, Why, How: Developing an extra-curricular Infants’ STEM program
STEM education is more than building challenges and technology – it is about students becoming curious learners, developing crucial skills that will enable them to interact positively and successfully with others and the world around them.
In this workshop, educators will come away with a developed knowledge of:
- The ‘What’ – what does STEM involve in the Early Years?
- The ‘Why’– a look at neuroplasticity and why early learning and skill practise is crucial for students later in life.
- The ‘How’ – a case study of how an extracurricular STEM program for infants’ students can be set up to promote those crucial skills.
