#15 STEM in early childhood / Sibylle Seidler Interview

This week we're focusing on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) in early childhood education. How does it fit with the current early years curriculum and programs, and how can we support children's skills in these areas?

Thanks to Sibylle Seidler from Little Scientists for joining Leanne for an interview. You can find out more about the Little Scientists program here.
