Days: Monday to Friday
Four different themes over seven themes this Summer Holiday!
For example….Week F: Science Academy!
Every day at this 5-day camp is science expedition into the unknown and over the week your child will do 40+ science activities, exciting demonstrations, hands-on experiments, team games and fun quizzes. Every Day includes: 4 indoor classroom-based premium fun, hands-on, science sessions and 3 outdoor ‘Activity Playground Breaks’ Disclaimer: Please note the order of the Activity Week Programme is subject to change. Should you wish to confirm the order of the Activity Week Programme at your camp venue; this will not be available until 1 week before the start of the camps.
Day 1> Mama Nature!
After a science show presented by the instructor the kids will be taken through hands-on science sessions from looking at animal adaptations, slime and the importance of it in nature to finding out about the bones in our bodies! Special Science experiments to take home and highlights include: Superhero Show- Use science to give you superhero powers and beat the bad guys! Catch Me If You Can- Make animal puppets able to defend themselves! Slime- But is it a solid or a liquid? Make your own and find out! Skeleton Jigsaw- Uses of bones in our bodies, take home a jigsaw skeleton!
Day 2> Science of Sport!
Covering a range of activities looking at forces and motion! We will investigate jet propulsion using balloon powered cars and find a very exciting way of overcoming friction! Special Science experiments to take home and highlights include: Science of Sport- Learn about different forces that take place in Sport! Experiment with speed guns and giant balloons! Wacky Races- Build a rocket car and investigate Newton’s laws of motion. Balloon Hovercrafts- Overcome friction, make your own hovercraft! Egg Cars- Investigate inertia and try to save the egg from its fate!
Day 3> Blinding Light!
This electron energy-packed day consists of creating different types of circuits as well as looking at the different types of light and what it is all made up of. To help us experiment with this blinding topic the kids use really cool experiments such as diffracting glasses and magic UV pens! Special Science experiments to take home and highlights include: Sunscreen Science- See the uses and dangers of UV light by making sun prints! Lighting it Up- Learn about electricity and help bright sparks make circuits! Kaleidoscope- Explore reflection & symmetry by making a kaleidoscope! A Rainbow in My Hands- Create an indoor rainbow, find out real colors of sunlight!
Day 4> Ready for Launch!
This day will have your kids on the edge of your seats. They will learn about the theories behind rocket power and how they work including propulsion, stability and air resistance. They will also design and build their own water rocket to launch at the end of the day! Special Science experiments to take home and highlights include: Safe Landing- Air resistance from the sky! Create home-made parachutes! Ready for Launch- Find out that the buildup of gas can cause high pressure for launching! Create their own rocket!
Day 5> Crazy Chemistry!
This day will be very chilly! The chemistry explored will be topics ranging from seeds and their secrets to acids and bases (using safe liquids such as cabbage juice!), creating crystals which they can watch grow at home to the mysteries of Dry Ice! Special Science experiments to take home and highlights include: Cabbage Indicator- Acids and bases, plus a take home indicator to keep on testing! The Mystery Gas – Enjoy mysteries of our dry ice & watch fantastic experiments! Seed Secrets- A world of plants; discover what’s inside and help them grow! Creating Crystals- Discover geodes; make copper sulphate crystals!
