Our Summer Camps are very child-centric and all of our children are our ‘Junior Einsteins’ ! We nurture children’s natural curiosity & creativity. We inspire our ‘Junior Einsteins’ to use their imaginations, make a mess, explore and discover. We do this through fantastic interactive experiments from Slimy Slime where children learn about long chain polymerisation and Non-Newtonian fluids. A Barbie Doll gets a hair raising experience on a Van Der Graaf generator while children learn about voltage and current. Lighting a light sabre with a plasma ball we learn how electricity flows! We inspire our ‘Junior Einsteins to explore a broad range of STEM subjects learning by doing; Fossil making, Forensics & DNA Extraction, Classification of Life, Rocket Races, Bug Hunts, Illusions and how cartoons are made, Geology and Volcanoes, Bernoulli’s effect and how planes fly, marine biology, quantum physics using Nerf guns. Chemistry ; PH Purple Power & Exothermic reactions making elephant’s toothpaste, Coke & Mentos Geysers, Magnets, Light, Junior Medics & Anatomy, Giant Smoke Cannons, Engineering, covering STEM & STEAM areas. Learning through tons of fun! LOTS of OUTDOOR Fun !
