This workshop explores the fascinating relationship between chemical reactions and language development in early childhood. Come along to learn how to recognise chemistry in children’s everyday lives, find opportunities for age-appropriate chemical exploration, and explore the pedagogy behind language development through STEM inquiry.


STEM topic: Chemical Reactions


In this hands on, interactive workshop, you will learn how to create rich STEM learning experiences in your service through the exciting topic of chemical reactions and use it as a topic through which to teach the outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework. Activities may include:


  • Use detective science skills to solve the mysteries of unidentified white substances.
  • Handle ‘dangerous materials’ and aerate chocolate!
  • Make a mess creating carbon dioxide with various substances.
  • Explore the properties of carbon dioxide in fizzy water and experiment with dancing grapes and blueberries.
  • Play with purple cabbage juice as a universal indicator and make noodles go from purple to blue or pink.
  • Make a baking soda rocket and find out why baking soda volcanoes aren’t as educational as you might think.
