Young children are already great scientists without even knowing it.
This fun-filled 4-session 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 will have a discovery box to take home between sessions with a load of exciting items and activities to explore between sessions. The program concludes in session 4 with a graduation ceremony for the junior discoverers.
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.
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
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.
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.
