Limited Capacity seats available

This talk will provide an introduction to curriculum and training materials produced by the EU funded project Creativity in Early Years Science (2014-1017) designed to support creative, inquiry-based approaches to early years science (children aged 3-8). It will include an overview of ways in which project materials were developed through partnerships between researchers, teachers, teacher educators and school leaders. Participants will be involved in discussion and practical activities to explore the nature of creative, inquiry-based approaches to learning and teaching. They will share classroom examples that illustrate both opportunities and challenges in fostering young children’s creativity in science.
