Children are consuming digital technologies at an alarming rate. Extensive research has shown the negative impact linked to excessive screen time - creating a pandemic of cognitive, health and social issues in our young generation. These issues largely affect success in every area of life – mental and physical well-being, academic performance, career outcomes and even human relationships.
At Edvocate, we recognise the challenges faced by the next generation. Leveraging on the popularity of toys and technology, we use them as fun learning tools and platforms to deliver our STEM curriculum, supporting the Victorian Science Curriculum and providing interactive learning opportunities. We aim to teach children to love creating and to be creators, not just consumers!
Through our STEM workshops, as well as yo-yo and skill toys club, we inspire our children today, to cultivate critical intrapersonal and interpersonal skills for tomorrow.
