The section on science and technology describes the importance of science for children, as well as emphasizes the importance of safety perspective during scientific activities. The objectives for science and technology during the pre-school period are also discussed.

The practical part represents activities, which include active participation by children. The thesis also includes hypotheses, research questions, objectives, the research method, and description of the group. These are followed by descriptions of activities with reflection and activities, which were not carried in the pre-school.
