The NECCE Week 2019 has three events lined up to raise the quality and professionalism of the early childhood community.
- The Educational Visits to childcare centres and preschools or kindergartens on Oct 4 to share good Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) practices which are being carried out. By experiencing these best practices, the participants will take home what they have experienced as well as give them inspiration on what else they can do to nurture children’s curiosity and develop their science process and thinking skills;
- The conference on “Bringing out the scientist in young children” on Oct 5 has lined up hands-on workshops to provide experiential learning and will also provide knowledge and better understanding of science, especially the science behind the activities. It is of great importance that the facilitators of the workshop provide the scientific knowledge and scientific explanations of the activities carried out. The plenary session two provides better understanding of the science process skills which children should acquire through carrying out STEM activities. Of importance are the policies and programmes which the Education Ministry is currently embarking on and the plans it is having in the pipeline; and
- The STEM Nature Walk is being held at Taman Dusun Bandar in Jalan Bellamy. There will be activities related to science for children.
