Hi there, I’m Emily.
Creator of the STEM Mum
I am a mother of three young children, aged 5 years and under.
Professionally, I work in Biomedical Engineering as a University Lecturer and Researcher in Australia. This field enables me to span several STEM disciplines and I hold a PhD in Neuroscience and Bachelor’s degrees in Biomedical Engineering and Science.
I take a lot of interest in STEM learning in preschoolers after spending lots of time at home with my own children and talking with other parents.
Here are my top 3 tips for promoting STEM interest in kids.
01. Opportunities to play
I promote play-based learning in all of my activities. Being able to get involved with hands on activities is vital for engagement and effective learning.
02. Make time for reading
I love reading time! It is the easiest way to introduce different ideas to your kids. Best of all it combines STEM with literacy which will set your kids up for success.
03. Find the STEM in the everyday
STEM is all around us. Normalise it and your kids won’t even know they are learning! I will help you to find the STEM in everyday.
