Event description

Description

Our education collaboration with Dyson aims to engage the minds of young children through STEM education using Dyson technology to demonstrate what’s in the air.

During the workshop, educators will acquire skills in inquiry-based STEM learning to support children’s natural curiosity and inquisitiveness in scientific research. The Dyson segment will bring an additional angle to the topic, by leading an exploration in air quality technology, encouraging educators to investigate what’s in the air with the children in their service.

Following the workshop, participants will receive a complimentary Dyson Pure Hot+Cool™ purifying fan heater that can sense, capture, project, heat and cool you – with one fan allocated per service. You will be well resourced to illustrate what you’ve learnt and to help start your children’s own journey of discovery.

In order to qualify for the complimentary Dyson Pure Hot+Cool™ purifying fan heater, services must register a minimum of two educators per booking.

This STEM learning opportunity will help you:

  • learn how early education can foster children’s metacognitive development

  • uncover how communication, reflection and questioning enhance children’s ability to think about their own learning

  • experience the effects of different prompts and questions on the learner

  • explore air through touch, sound and movement

  • 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.
