Kide Science – playful STEAM lessons for early childhood education
Seeds for scientific literacy need to be planted during early childhood education. Learning scientific thinking in early childhood predicts better learning outcomes in school. Kide Science supports children’s scientific thinking through play-based learning.
Kide Science was born through years of academic research done in Finland. Based on research done by our founder, PhD Jenni Vartiainen, we developed our play-based STEAM concept for 3–8-year old children.
Our pedagogical model
Engaging learning experiences at an early age
STEM subjects are often considered boring and distant from everyday life. We tackle this challenge at an early age!
Our hands-on, heads-on, hearts-on pedagogy shifts science learning into imaginative science play. In this imaginary scenario, we invite young minds to think and act like scientists who are solving a real problem. Imagination drives the whole inquiry process from the beginning to the end. We say that science is child’s play.
