Children and Families Research Centre

Adventures with Science A workshop for Preschool and Primary Educators


Register Now

Science is all around us. Science is also for everyone, regardless of age, and if we teach children early, they grow up with a love and understanding of biology and chemistry; geology and meteorology; physics and astronomy. So knowing where the earth came from and that we are all made from the stuff of stars is basic science for us all. Discovering the science in our world is a creative and fun-filled adventure, able to be taught to the youngest child and the oldest adult. Camilla's research places children as very capable and ready for learning, honouring the wonderful intelligence and imagination of the young child.
