And that’s a wrap! Training has now completed for our Little Bang Discovery Club.

The Little Bang Discovery Club has been introducing our youngest minds to the joys of science. Over the past year, children aged 3 – 5 years spend four weeks collecting, measuring, classifying and experimenting with objects around them.

Inspiring SA has been working hard to deliver the program through libraries. Since October 2016, we have trained librarians in regional and metropolitan South Australia. Now, that training is virtually complete, and to date, 137 librarians in 76 libraries across the state have been trained.

The program has been a huge success, and provided a unique insight into the mind of kids. Participating children at Cummins School Library, for example, were tasked with classifying socks. While some kids arranged socks by colours, others sorted them by scary animals!

Next year, the program will continue with The Little Bang Discovery Club Plus! More librarians across the state will receive training for this extended program, and you can expect more stories about enthusiastic children enjoying the joys of science!

The Little Bang Discovery Club is brought to you by Inspiring South Australia, in collaboration with Libraries SA and the Children’s Discovery Museum
