        WINTER HALF TERM 2017 TOPICS

SANTA'S 
TOY
WORKSHOP

Santa needs our help! Today the mini Mad Scientists will build a super-charged sleigh to take home and figure out the best way to get down (and back up!) the chimney. We will explore the colourful properties of Christmas Candy, become a present-predicting detective and sniff out some scrummy seasonal scents. Come and enjoy some festive fun, the Mad Science way!

KINETIC
CHAOS 


It’s time to get energised as we explore energy transfer and how things move. Come and test, play and ponder as we discover the secrets of how energy changes and makes things bounce, fly and zoom. We’ll jump, push, stretch and investigate forces and friction as we make a bouncy ball and whizzy toy to take home.  It will be movement madness as we test a menagerie of Mad Science toys and gadgets! 

FUN FAIR
PHYSICS


There’ll be plenty of clowning around and awe-inspiring antics as we investigate how science helps makes the Fair amaze big and little people alike!  Transform into a trainee tight-rope walker, a scientific snake charmer and ruler of the roller coaster as we explore how physics affects the world all around us. Defy gravity with a take home tight rope trickster.  It’s all the fun of the fair!

COOL
CRYSTALS


Come and crack the chemical code behind our cool crystals. We'll examine how crystals are formed and create our own crystal structures. Discover where crystals are found in the world around us and use them to observe snowflakes and animal prints.  We will freeze our own funky frozen fruity drinks, grow crystal gardens and make our own sparkling crystal creation to take home. Cool!

SONIC
SOUNDWAVES


Super Sonic Science awaits our Jr Geniuses as we ponder the properties and transmission of sound waves. Help us to visualise vibrations, make merry, musical melodies and explore every shake, rattle and jingle as you work towards becoming a Listening Legend!  Make a thunder cracker and singing straw instrument to take home.  Come on, feel the noise!
