The Technisches Museum Wien and Junge Industrie have joined forces to launch the ninth round of the online training and continuing education initiative for kindergarten and elementary school educators, focusing on natural science and technology.
 
 
Children have a natural curiosity, an instinct to explore – and they often ask critical questions! So what better proof of the vast potential of early childhood education? What’s more, it has been shown that any encouragement children under the Age 8 are able to receive has a particularly favourable impact on their future development. And so, to stimulate the enthusiasm of 3 to 8-year-olds for natural sciences and technology, the Technisches Museum Wien has teamed up with Junge Industrie to launch the further training and continuing education initiative for kindergarten and elementary school educators called ‘Technology is child’s play!’ aimed at promoting early childhood development in this field.
 
The ‘Technology is child’s play!’ project allows educators to acquire additional qualifications in technology and natural science, based on a child’s world view and their horizon of experience. Other aspects of the course include problem-solving skills, recognising correlations and language development.
 
Application details:
In May 2021, a total of 20 educators, will have the opportunity to work through the ‘Technology is child’s play!’ online curriculum at the Technisches Museum Wien. Participating kindergartens and elementary schools will be provided with the relevant materials and resources for working with the children. Please note that the whole curriculum will be held in german.
