Activity Week Programme
Brilliant Biology! – New Egg-celllent Activities for 2020
Every day at this 4-day camp is a science expedition into the unknown and over the week your child will do 30+ science activities, exciting demonstrations, hands-on experiments, team games and fun quizzes.
Every Day includes: 4 classroom-based fun, hands-on, science sessions and 3 ‘Activity Playground Breaks’
Disclaimer: Please note the order of the Activity Week Programme is subject to change. The Hertfordshire office does 2 sessions per day due to their shorter day. Should you wish to confirm the order of the Activity Week Programme at your camp venue; this will not be available until 2 weeks before the start of the camps.
Day 1: Brilliant Bodies!
We discover some amazing body facts and carry out lots of body experiments. Children gain a better understanding of how the lungs work and will make their own lung model! We investigate what happens when our teeth are left in an acidic solution for too long and make a teeth model. The children become mini doctors and learn how to use a stethoscope and monitor their heart rates!
Breathe In, Breathe Out! – We discover how our lungs work and make a working lung model.
What Big Teeth You Have! – We learn why looking after our teeth is so important and dissolve an eggs shell to make a bouncing egg!
Feel The Beat! – We discover how our hearts work and see a pumping heart model!
Bizarre Bodies! – We tried some crazy experiments with our bizarre bodies – can you roll your tongue or wiggle your ears?
Day 2: Spring Has Sprung!
Spring is a time for new life to grow – We find out what seeds need to germinate and plants to grow and create our own growing greenhouse! We look at the world of plants and find out some fruits can be used to generate electricity! We consider motion and inertia as the Easter Bunny challenges us to safely deliver Easter Eggs in a Mother Nature Science Easter Bonnet Parade. Finally, we have some sticky fun as we investigate slimes!
Plantacious! – We learn all sorts of fascinating plant facts and bring a dead plant back to life!
How Does Your Garden Grow? – We harness the greenhouse effect to create the perfect growing environment for our seeds.
Easter Bonnet Parade Challenge – Can you design a special scientific Easter bonnet to protect an egg from a messy fate?
Stuck On You! – We look at sticky mucus and create some super sticky slime!
Day 3: Amazing Animals!
Children learn the different stages in a bee’s life and make a bee model. The Easter Bunny helps us discover some rabbit facts and we make a bouncing friction bunny. The children become mini palaeontologists and discover what a fossil is. We discover each stage of a frog’s life cycle and learn a little about some interesting looking frogs!
Busy Buzz! – We look at the life of a hard-working insect – the honeybee!
Hop To It! – From frog spawn, to tadpole, to frog, we investigate the frog life cycle.
Bouncing Bunnies! – The Easter Bunny had hidden lots of funny bunny facts for us to find in an Easter Egg treasure hunt.
Dino Science – From Velociraptors to Tyrannosaurus Rex we unearth our favourite dinosaur details and discover some dinosaur fossils!
Day 4: Super Senses!
We investigate how sounds are made and make a very LOUD paper banger! We discover some scentsational facts and make some scented soap. Children gain a better understanding of our amazing eyes and make a spinning Benham Illusion Disc. Then we go on a journey learning about the brain and take part in fun and interesting brain experiments.
Noisence! – Some noises are really noisy – how loud is our paper banger!
See All You Can See! –We look closely at the eye structure and see some dazzling eye illusions!
What’s That Smell! – We have a mystery smell challenge to test how sensitive our noses are!
Brainiacs! – We make a brain hat to display our brilliant brain power!
