Description


The Little Bang After School Science Discovery Club

Suitable for ages 4 to 7 years and guardian supervision and participation is required for the duration of the session.

Please note participants will be required to attend all four weekly sessions.

Young children are already great scientists without even knowing it.

This fun-filled 4-week hands-on program combines everyday objects and experiences with genuine scientific enquiry methods that children and their accompanying parents will thoroughly enjoy. Best of all, everyone can borrow, with their library membership, a Little Bang Discovery Box to take home each week with a load of exciting items and activities to explore between sessions. The program concludes in week 4 with a graduation ceremony for the junior discoverers.

The course is divided into the following sessions:

Thursday 7 November 3.45-4.45pm, Session 1: Collecting and Classifying

Being a junior discoverer takes some special skills. In this first session you will learn how to sort and match objects from around the home and from the ‘Discovery Box’ we loan to you for the duration of the course.

Thursday 14 November 3.45-4.45pm, Session 2: Measuring

In this session we will learn all about weighing and measuring – one of the first and most important skills of early discoverers. Learn how to balance unevenly weighted objects so you can make your own mobile at home.

Thursday 21 November 3.45-4.45pm,Session 3: Experimenting

Today we will ask lots of questions and design our own experiments to find the answers. We put our measuring, observation and recording skills to the test. We will prepare you to undertake your own experiment at home for next week’s science fair.

Thursday 28 November 3.45-4.45pm Session 4: Science Fair

In our final session the children will take part in their very own science fair, sharing what they have discovered in their own experiment. Then enjoy more table-top science activities and finally there is a graduation ceremony where each child will receive a certificate.

Little Bang Discovery Club is a FREE 4 week program but bookings are essential.
