STEM stands for Science, Technology Engineering, & Mathematics

ELSA is a program designed to help children explore science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through hands -on and digital activities. The digital activities are delivered via ELSA children’s apps, which are available at the preschool service on their iPads and/or Android tablets.

ELSA apps go beyond the screen to encourage active play and act as a springboard for children to explore the natural world. The apps prompt children to ask questions, make predictions, experiment, and reflect on what happened and why. Each child taking part in ELSA will use the ELSA apps for a maximum of 40 minutes per week (usually broken up into smaller sessions). The aim is to minimise screen time while maximising learning outcomes, with two thirds of the program being off- app.
