Stretchy STEM Stories

For Children aged 2 - 4 and their carers'

Join Georgina, Joe, and Albany Mouse for a four week programme and step into science through Picture books and playdough.  You and your little one will learn about how even non-experts can explore the world of science, stretching stories beyond the page and into the world around us. Over the 4 week programme we will take inspiration from 3 picture books to encourage curiosity with science; and develop language skills whilst learning about the world through playful experimentation.  Between each session you will be able to borrow the Picture books and playdough to take home with some suggested activities and continue to play together during the week.

This is a pilot series developed between The Great North Museum: Hancock and Northumbria University STEM Outreach (NUSTEM)
