At Inventor Kids we believe in changing the perception of STEM education. We want to make it accessible to everyone, normalise it so that it becomes a regular occurrence and is, most importantly, fun!
STEM is intertwined in so many aspects of our lives. You may not even know it. It starts as a mindset that can be nurtured and developed through the years. Even our early learners are the most capable developers of these ideas. Let’s invent together and inspire our future generations.
Dr Emily Anderson
I am a STEM professional that is passionate about educating kids in these disciplines.
I hold 3 university degrees in the STEM disciplines; a Bachelor of Science (Physiology), a Bachelor of Engineering (Biomedical) and a PhD in Neuroscience.
I have lectured at the University of New South Wales and the University of Melbourne in Engineering and I have also held research positions for the last 10 years in both engineering and science laboratories. During this time, I have been part of a national team working on the development of a Bionic Eye, a flagship bioengineering medical device that restores vision for blind individuals.
I am a mother of 3 young children and I actively engage in STEM activities at home through play-based learning. I learn from them through their development and they have taught me to be creative in my delivery of STEM too.
In 2019, I created the STEM Mum. This is a resource for STEM activities and parenting tips to do at home with children aged 5 years and under.
Now, we are ready to bring these activities to you!
