Big Science for Little Hands is a resource designed specifically for educators and caregivers of children aged 2 to 5 years. There are 18 themes of hands-on activities that promote scientific literacy, STEM and the inquiry-based approach to learning.
This workshop provides an opportunity for you to try out a variety of hands-on science activities from two of our themes; Sticky Stuff and Reflections and Shadows. You will explore why glue is sticky, what happens when it dries? How Velcro is connected to nature, what we mean by wet and dry and investigate the properties of light and colour with mirrors, reflections and shadows!
We will spend time teasing out the science concepts of each activity and discuss ways to encourage scientific literacy in young children.
