Running from 14 - 22 August, National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology. Swinburne is proud to be hosting a range of events and activities.

Join Associate Professor Caroline Cohrssen and Professor Susanne Garvis, editors of the book, ‘Embedding STEAM in Early Childhood Education and Care’.

An important contribution to early childhood education, this title approaches STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) on multiple angles and focuses on the teaching and learning of children from two years of age to the early years of school. Our speakers will share important messages from their book.
