The Benefits for your Child

Activity Week Programme

Epic Engineering! – New for 2019

Every day at this 4 day camp is a 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.
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 2 weeks before the start of the camps.

Day 1> The Clever Scientist Challenge!

The scientists are launched into group challenges such as making a water carrier, designing a beak which picks up food, creating the most intricate spider web and using pneumatics to invent a snapping dinosaur!
Powerful Paper Cup! – Imagine being marooned on a desert island – one of the first things you need to find is drinking water – but how will you get it back to camp? The children design a water carrier using just a sheet of paper!
Hungry, Hungry Birds! – Different birds have different beaks adapted to their food source. Can you design a bird beak to pick up grains of rice for your hungry chicks?
Wonder Web! – A spider web is a marvel of engineering – in groups we design an intricate web to catch some ‘flies’.
Dino Snapper! Pnuematic power is explored and harnessed to create a snapping dinosaur.

Day 2> Cool Creative Thinking!

The creative thinkers compete with each other in engineering challenges to build the tallest tower, construct a strong bridge, winch up the heaviest weight and build some balance scales.
Tin Foil Tower of London! Can your team build the tallest tower? Height isn’t the only criteria; your tower must be strong and earthquake proof too!
Winch It Up! Can you lift your lunch box from the floor to the table – no hands allowed!!
Bombastic Bridge Challenge! Using just paper straws (and some knowledge of strong shapes) can your team build the strongest bridge?
Weigh It Up! We practice our balancing skills and then build some balance scales and test them with different materials.

Day 3> Epic Engineering Fun!

Today is a messy fun day! In groups we make a dam from a limited amount of materials to keep a village safe down river, then children take part in a fun bubble session and make their own bubble wands, we then discover the science behind a frog’s sticky tongue and end the day with more sticky fun with our ever-popular slime making activity!
Brilliant Bubble Maker! – Who doesn’t love bubbles? We see small bubbles, touchabubbles and even square bubbles – but the group challenge is to make the largest bubble.
Dastardly Dam Challenge! Using a limited amount of materials can you design a dam to hold back the river?
Cool Catching Flies! Why do frogs have a sticky tongue? We design our own sticky frog tongues and on the way learn the fascinating history of velcro!
Super Sticky Slime! –The sticky fun doesn’t end as we explore Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids, and then make slime!

Day 4> Super Designer!

The designers work together to build the strongest boat then construct a flying machine and see who can fly the furthest. Then we get hands on with making a puzzling magic wallet and finally test our scientific investigation skills when we carry out experiments to find the best bottle tossing secrets!
Unsinkable Strong Boat! – Can you float a boat? We use a minimum range of materials to construct the best floating boat.
Fantastic Flying Fun! – We investigate the Four Fantastic Forces of Flight and then design our own flying machines to see which team can fly the furthest.
Magic Wallet! We learn the science of topology and bamboozle our brains with a magic money wallet trick.
Best Bottle Toss Challenge! We take the playground fad of the year and design an experiment to discover the best bottle tossing techniques.


Remember –  Parents will also receive a TOP SECRET Handout that tells you:

  1. What They DID?
  2. What They LEARNT?
  3. Other cool science you can EXPLORE AT HOME?
