Santa’s Workshop – New Sessions for 2018

Did you know Santa needed an MSc in Science and Engineering before he could start his Toy Workshop? Well he did, and we take a trip to Santa’s Workshop with your little ones this December and explore the fun science behind all things Christmas!

Every day on this five-day science activity camp is a great mix of exciting demonstrations, hands-on experiments, team games, and fun quizzes. Over the week your child will take part in 30+ science activities and demonstrations including:

Day 1> Ho! Ho! Ho!  

We look at shapes and see what happens when we twist and bend them. What is ichnology? We study the science of animal tracks. We look at seed dispersal and find out how pinecones spread their seeds. What is speed? Discover how fast different things are, and work out just how fast Father Christmas has to travel to deliver all your presents!
Deck the Halls Make some Christmas decorations with a scientific twist.
Footprints in the Snow A snowy field is the perfect surface to track some winter animals –and make your own impression cast.
Pine Cone Party – What is a pine cone? Find out how this prickly pod spreads its seeds.
Elf Challenge – Santa Claus Is Coming To Town – We look at the field of Santa Speed Science and see how fast we can deliver Santa’s Presents.

Day 2> Silent Night

Have noisy fun and learn about sound, vibrations, and pitch and join in with the Mother Nature Carol Sing Song! We all know what gold is, but just what were frankincense and myrrh? Discover the electrical science behind Christmas lights and decorate the Mother Nature Science Christmas Tree. We discover lots of fascinating facts about light.
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells – We jingle all the way while making some festive musical instruments.
We Three Kings – We create a precious Christmas gift (better known as Santa Slime!)
O Christmas Tree – We learn about circuits and make a light up Christmas decoration. Using our knowledge of electrical circuits we light up the Mother Nature Science Christmas Tree.
Elf Challenge – White Christmas – We shine a (white) light on our Christmas activities and work out what the colours of the rainbow are, and watch an exciting and colourful indoor firework show.

Day 3> Merry Christmas!

Putting the angel on a Christmas tree is always tricky but not if we use science to help us! Learn some reindeer facts and how reindeer are superbly suited to their environment. We work out what are the strongest shapes and how they can be used to build strong structures. Then we compete in our teams in a test of balancing skills.
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing Create your own balancing angel to top off your Christmas tree.
Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer – Help Rudolph race with friction science to deliver presents with Santa.
Build a Christmas Tree –Using strong shapes we build a tall Christmas tree.
Elf Challenge – Reindeer Relay We test our balancing skills in a Racing Reindeer Relay game.

Day 4> Snowy Snow

Investigate states of matter and create a special Christmas candle.  Every snowflake is unique, we discover how they are formed. While vibrating spaghetti and hearing an ancient roaring instrument, we learn about sound resonance. We compete in teams to make the best snowman for our Elf on the Shelf Challenge.
Light a Little Candle – Solid, liquid and gas – we explore some states of matter and make a Christmas candle.
Let It Snow – make your own beautiful snowflakes and decorate them using the science of chromatography!
Little Drummer Boy – We have noisy fun while discovering vibrations and frequencies, then make our own frequency drum.
Elf Challenge – Do You Want to Build a Snowman? Our Elf on the Shelf has challenged us to build the biggest and best Snowman!

Day 5> Festive Fun!

Friction slows things down, but there’s no stopping our scientists helping Santa get down the chimney and discovering some ancient maths puzzles and patterns. We are treated to a festive, freezing dry ice show and as it is the end of the week and nearly Christmas, it’s time for the North Pole Christmas Party!
When Santa Got Stuck Up the Chimney – We learn some fabulous friction facts and make a Friction Santa!
Pascal’s Puzzle – We discover a mysterious maths pattern and use it to create a tricky triangle Christmas card.
Frosty the Snow Man – Dry Ice – We have some really cool fun and learn some fascinating freezing facts about chilly dry ice.
Elf Challenge – Festive Fun Games – Find out what silly science games the elves play and have a go at them too!
