Explore Scienceworks exhibitions, including Ground Up: Building Big Ideas, Together. Ground Up is an exhibition for babies to five-year-olds where curiosity is rewarded around each bend with surprising and intriguing sights, sounds and touch sensations.

STEM in the Early Years at Little Kids’ Day In

Children are naturally curious. Right from birth, children are wondering and exploring, watching and listening, moving and feeling. Skills in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) are increasingly recognised as vital for all children’s learning. Children naturally use STEM skills like curiosity and experimentation as they explore the world around them, especially through play.

Our Little Kids’ Day In programs are developed to maximise play-based STEM learning in the context of real-world scenarios. We developed the following posters as a reminder for how children are learning STEM skills while they are playing.

Baby Sensory

We’re excited to be teaming up with Baby Sensory for 2021! Baby Sensory will be attending each Little Kids’ Day In event, delivering specialised sessions for babies aged 0–13 months old. Baby Sensory introduces you and your baby to a world of sensory delights, where you can relax, spend quality time with each other and enjoy meeting other new parents. Specifically designed from birth to aid your child's development, the programme is packed with an incredible variety of sounds, smells, sights, textures, music, dance, signing and massage – and you'll never experience the same class twice.

Little Kids’ Day In is perfect for kids aged 5 and under, their parents and carers.
