ELSA Investigations is part of the Early Learning STEM Australia (ELSA) Pilot, funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training and managed by the University of Canberra.
This app is only for children attending preschools participating in the 2018 ELSA Pilot. It is the fourth ELSA children’s app, following Representations.
In order to use this app, educators taking part in the pilot will need to connect it to the ELSA Educator app using a code.
The ELSA Pilot is a play-based digital learning program for children in preschool to explore science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). ELSA apps are aligned to the Early Years Learning Framework.
ELSA Investigations is full of opportunities for children to play and engage with STEM Practices while building pipes to allow water to flow into a veggie patch, matching evidence to a particular animal, using tools to find insects hidden in a landscape, and creating their own evidence for use in the app.
