Podcasts are now available from a special Professional Development Day hosted by Inspiring South Australia and the Children’s Discovery Museum, exploring ways to encourage young children into science.

Librarians and early childhood educators from across South Australia gathered to attend A Little Bang Discovery and Professional Development Day, exploring strategies to guide children in a changing world.

The podcasts are a live-recording of the day’s presentations and panels, which explored ideas and skills to encourage children’s active participation, creativity and critical thinking in the world around us.

Over 90 enthusiastic participants attended the event during National Science Week 2018. The event was a unique opportunity to discover ways that libraries and early-learning centres could bring together science, the arts, literacy and creativity to enhance children’s understanding of and engagement with the world we live in.

Inspiring South Australia has been delivering the Little Bang Discovery Club to libraries across regional and metropolitan South Australia. The Little Bang Discovery Club is a four-week program where children aged 3 -5 years old learn the basics of science.

Listen to the podcast of the day below.
