Event description

Description

STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding children’s inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. The outcome of engagement in these areas are children who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process.

This workshop will allow participants to build knowledge and confidence by discovering the various ways of incorporating STEAM into everyday practice. A range of resources will be provided for participants, allowing for experiential learning and embedding ideas through a hands on collaborative approach.

We will also delve into the following:

- Reflections on our prior experience in STEAM, does this restrict us or inspire us?

- Why is it important to address STEAM in OSHC settings and what is the research telling us?

- How can we provide experiences that promote children’s problem solving skills?

- What resources are required and where can these be obtained?

- How can we create engaging spaces that promote collaboration and investigation?
