Description

Mathematics is hidden everywhere in shapes and spaces around us!

In the Little Scientists MATHEMATICS workshop you will explore shapes and space, symmetry, solids, surfaces and symbols. You will experience how the magic of mathematics is hidden in everyday life and learn about, and how to encourage the development of abstract thought processes.

Each workshop topic continues to build on your knowledge from previous, deepening your insights into the concepts of inquiry-based learning, metacognition, and co- co-construction.
 
To further support continuous professional growth, we introduce new relevant STEM topics each year.
 
It is compulsory to start our program with the Water Exploration workshop first. Once the water workshop is complete, the order for attending additional workshop topics is open for the participant to decide.
The Little Scientist  Professional Learning program targets educators who work with 3 – 5 year olds.
