Inquiry-based STEM learning for early childhood educators. Our professional development program supports inquiry-based teaching approaches through the lens of science, technology, engineering and mathematics [STEM]. The face-to-face workshops are designed to promote confidence in facilitating STEM learning and empower those working with children aged 3-6 years to implement playful, inquiry-based experiences in educational programs. Our play-based workshops provide educators and teachers with a solid understanding in planning and implementing STEM in their service. Previous STEM knowledge is not required to attend these workshops. We have seven engaging workshops which can be completed in any order. At each workshop you will be provided with comprehensive, high-quality resources and strategies you can use immediately. The program aligns with the Early Years Learning Framework as well as the National Quality Standards (NQS) and is mapped against the Australian curriculum.
