Kids, parents and preschool teachers, get excited about STEAM this Summer at the Science Centre
We can’t wait for KidsSTOP’s inaugural ‘Preschool STEAM Learning Festival’ (25 – 28 July 2019) where preschoolers, parents and educators alike will all come away with new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) knowledge.
The Preschool STEAM Learning Festival is a four-day event organised by KidsSTOP™, an edutainment centre by Science Centre Singapore and one of our all time favourite places to take the kiddos. They’ve teamed up with Preschool Market and a host of informed changemakers to make STEAM topics more accessible to kids, parents and even teachers.
Preschool STEAM Learning Festival: What to expect?
- STEAM-based workshops and hands-on activities for 2 to 8-year-olds
- Talks by change-makers in the Early Childhood industry
- Showcases by preschools
Who is the Preschool STEAM Learning Festival geared towards?
Parents, their kids and teachers!
This festival is great for parents who want to support their kids’ STEAM education but are not sure where to start. Don’t worry mamas and dads, there are plenty of tips in store! You’ll hear from Ms Jonnansical Boo, homeschooler mother and STEM Fair director at the Homeschool Convention 2019 on how to make science fun for kids at home, plus other game-changers in Early Childhood.
Preschool educators, if you are looking to stay up to speed on the latest STEAM based teaching concepts and methods you will find these sessions super useful, plus it’s a great place to meet like-minded people in the industry. There will be over 20 exhibitors and 19 speakers all passionate about STEAM — for example a session tackling what STEAM actually is and its benefits for future learning by Dr Weelai Suwanarat.
3. Young Children
Kids will have a blast at the Preschool STEAM Learning Festival too! Look out for hands-on STEAM workshops for children 2 – 8 years old. There will be a chance to do coding, take part in performance art, have fun with maths with puzzles and games, and get creative making your own music maker, bipedal robot sculpture or launching your own rocket at the Wind table! We are excited for the LabX Science Experimentation workshop by Marshall Cavendish Education where you and your child will learn how to make an edible water bottle and take home a LabX kit so you can run your own experiments at home! Check out all the immersive workshops (some ticketed, others FREE) on offer here.
So hurry and grab your tickets here (plus take advantage of a range of discounts)!
