Bendigo Discovery Science & Technology Centre brings you Small Science, hosted by Early Years Program Developer, Dana Twycross. 

In this episode, Dana explains just how important play can be to help kids learn. 

There are a lot of different definitions for just what play means, but five universally agreed upon definitions say that play should be: 

  • self-chosen and self-directed 
  • intrinsically motivated 
  • rules-based 
  • imaginative 
  • engaged in with an alert, active and non-stressed state of mind.
