Description


Early Years STEM Professional Workshop Series – Workshop 1

Facilitated by Chelsea Cutting and Deb Hosking from UniSA Mount Gambier.

This workshop is an introduction to STEM Education in the Early Years, and an exploration of some practical implications for your sites and classrooms. P
articipants will be introduced to the pedagogical and conceptual foundations of STEM education from Kindy to Year 2, through collaborative professional leaning experiences at the University of South Australia’s Mount Gambier campus. As this is the first in a series of 8 workshops offered to early childhood educators, workers and support staff from Blue Lake Partnership sites (exclusively), your site will have the opportunity to identify your “needs and wants” of STEM education to help shape the course of this workshop series.
