Dip your TOES Interactive Workshop

  • Child with bright painted hands

The Eleanor Glanville Centre is hosting the first ‘TOES: Tinker, Observe, Explore Science’ Interactive workshop that will explore the concept of science capital with Lincolnshire families and enable parents to become facilitators of their children’s STEM learning

It is known that children’s attitudes to science form at an early age, and stereotyped-perceptions of scientists exist in children as young as 6. The development of such stereotypes has been attributed in part to a lack of science capital in children - in essence, a lack of exposure to ‘science and scientists’. Science capital can be visualised as a holdall or bag, containing everything you know about science – how you think about it, what you do and who you know. The Dip your TOES workshop aims to increase the science capital of young children (age 5–7) by encouraging them to consider ‘what’s in your bag?’ and providing the tools for parents to connect school science with their everyday lives.

The TOES Project is part-funded by the Biochemical Society and will take place at Staniland Academy, Boston on Saturday 29 September. Local schoolchildren and their parents have been invited to attend.
