Exploring STEM Through Sensory Play with Tom Bedard | CHARNWOOD ACT

Creating a Dynamic Sensory Table: Breathe new life into your sand and water table and inspire STEM Thinking (3-hour workshop)

Children tell the story of discovery and the joy of learning at the sand and water tray as they explore cheap and easy-to-build constructions in and around the sensory table.  Through photos, videos and anecdotes, the children use non-scripted play to take charge of their own learning in all developmental domains, especially scientific thinking.  Explore the value of sensory play in developing STEM thinking skills.  Participants will also explore how this can be adapted in an outdoor sandpit, discuss implementation strategies, embracing the mess and how to bring all educators on board.  

In this hands-on practical session participants create their own construction to use in their sand or water tray.
