During this seven-hour workshop, you will explore the impact of physical forces through leveraging, lifting, swinging and moving and investigate how engineers utilise these forces. You will define the purpose of engineering and consider what a world without engineering would be like.

The workshop will help you recognise opportunities for technical learning in everyday life and show you how to scaffold children’s eagerness to invent, produce, analyse and experiment. You will recognise individual preferences in technical education and explore your own technical approach.

By the end of this workshop, you will know how to integrate technical education into your setting in age-appropriate ways.

This workshop aligns with the principles, practices and outcomes of the EYLF, NQF and the Australian Curriculum.
