Straffan N.S. School Children exclusively, After-School Science Club, 8th November- 20th December

During this 6 week After-School Science Club children will do a range of hands-on Science activities and experiments; Throughout this After-School Science Club children will do 10+ meter high cola explosions!!! This After-School Science Club is suitable for 5-12 year old children. Science Lab coats and goggles are provided to children. 8th November – Blubber gloves and arctic Animal adaptations To introduce the concept of body insulation and other adaptions of animals who live in arctic temperatures. Through activity-based learning children will develop an awareness of how animals are able to survive temperatures well below zero degrees. 15th November- Sparks will fly ; Electricity SCIENCE: This series of fun experiments is designed to help our Junior Einsteins to observe and understand, through demonstration-based learning, how electrical charge flows through materials. We also aim to show them that some materials can conduct electricity and others cannot. Visually this is a very popular science concept and one that the children won’t forget Children learn that a Van Der Graaf generator is a machine which uses a moving belt to accumulate very high charges on a hollow metal globe. Children discover that The Van Der Graaf Generator was developed in 1929 by American physist Robert J Van Der Graaff. Children love to see a Barbie Doll have a ‘hair raising experience’ 22nd November – Pigments of Imagination; Colour Science: Children will learn key words ‘pigment’ and ‘chromatography’ and their meaning. They will become aware that coloured pens are created by combining a number of primary colours, through implementation of simple chromatography they will be able to separate mixtures, particularly colours. Through extraction of leaf colour and use of chromatography, children will investigate how leaves have pigments just like ink or paint. 6th November – Shell fossil Paleontology : Children learn about how ancient fossils were formed in nature and make their own take home fossil replica.  13th December – Take home density lava lamp making: To help children gain an understanding of the concept of density and why some liquids float on top of each other. Children have fun with several experiments and take home their own lava lamps. 20th December – Geology science and take home christmas chrystal making! To help children gain an understanding of the development of crystals from a geological point of view and get them engaged in growing their own crystals. Throughout this After-School Science Club children will do 10+ meter high cola explosions!!! This After-School Science Club is suitable for 5-12 year old children.
