A Commonwealth of Communities of Science: Voice of the Child

Stranmillis College, Belfast

October 28-30, 2019

One of the projects that CASTME supports currently is to encourage mothers and carers of young pre-school children to recognise the everyday science in their lives and point such to children hence increasing science experiences, of both the adults and the children, as well as their communication literacy skills.

CASTME is interested in the science inherent in play, particularly in less affluent areas.
