Little Scientists STEM Engineering Workshop, Greenway ACT
Date and Time
Swinging, running, jumping, falling: Physical forces are all part of the fun and children love to explore their effects.
Explore physical forces while leveraging, lifting, swinging and moving, and unleash your inner engineer. Are you an inventor or do you like to immerse yourself into step-by-step instructions? Discover how to playfully integrate technical education into a nurturing learning environment.
This STEM learning opportunity will help you:
- learn how to recognise opportunities for technical education
- explore invention, production, analysis and experimentation as facets of engineering
- recognise individual preferences in technical education and explore your own technical approach
- discover physical forces while leveraging, lifting, swinging and moving
- benefit from the exchange with like-minded educators and reflect on your current practice
- feel confident in unlocking the wonders of STEM.
You will also receive comprehensive materials with lots of STEM ideas and information about inquiry-based practices.
Topic learning objectives
- Invention, analysis, production and technical experiment as gateways to technical education
- Recognising individual preferences in technical education
- Physical forces and their effects in everyday life

Little Scientists Australia
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.
