Event description

Description

Hands-on science for curious kids who like to make things, experiment, use gadgets and find out cool stuff. We'll discover WHY stuff happens, WHAT makes things the way they are and HOW things work!

We'll make fun gadgets, we'll mix up chemical compounds, build and test models, investigate with scientific equipment and experiment with super-cool science! There'll be lots of making and experimenting for everyone to get involved, with all the tools, equipment and ingredients provided.

13 January: Water Rockets

Let's cool down and blast off with water rockets! Learn about impulse motion and design a rocket from everyday rubbish. Once we launch our rockets we'll see which design gets the highest so that we can refine the experiment. Once the parents arrive we'll do a mass launch to show off our skills!

27 January: Messing around with Boats

Who can build the ultimate boat? Let's have some watery fun with aquadynamics, streamlining and potential energy! We'll design our own paddle wheel boat and test it out in the pond. Then we'll refine the experiment with different power-sources, and finish off with a fun boat race!
