Event description

Description

Hands-on science for curious kids who like to make things, experiment, use gadgets and find out cool stuff. Lead by our fun and knowledgeable Garden Science Educator, 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! Every month we’ll explore a new theme with a mini science-show and lots of making and experimenting for everyone to get involved, with all the tools, equipment and ingredients provided.

2 and 9 December: Doom at Dinnertime (part of the 'Plants with Bite' festival)

In December we'll have fun with carnivorous plants! We'll dissect plants and use microscopes to get a close-up view of all the clever tricks these plants use to lure, trap and digest their prey! Then we'll plant our very own tiny carnivourous plant to take home and feed flies.

13 January: Water Rockets

In January we'll cool down 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!

10 February: Messing around with Boats

In February lets learn about aquadynamics, streamlining and potential energy! We'll start by designing a basic paddle wheel boat before testing it out in the pond. Here we'll continue to refine the experiment so we can have a fun boat race to finish our day.
