Introduction:

Mother Nature Science Holiday Camp is the ultimate holiday mix of education, fun and indoor and outdoor hands-on science experiments and activities!

Every year the Mother Nature Science Camp inspires thousands of budding scientists (form all over the UK and Internationally), ages 5- 12 years,  during the Summer, Easter and Christmas school Holidays and even the half-term breaks at premium Partner School Venues. We’ve been running these camps for over 10 years.

Children need to bring their own packed lunch, mid-session snack and drinks bottle. We have a no sharing food policy. We respectfully ask for nut products (such as peanut butter, Nutella and bags of nuts) not to be placed in pack lunches. Campers should wear appropriate clothing for indoor and outdoor activities.

Activity Programme – what they do!

HALLOWEEN SCIENCE

This spooky Halloween themed five day science activity  camp is a great mixture of exciting demonstrations, hands-on experiments, team games and fun quizzes – across chemistry, biology and physics. No day is any better than any other. Over the week your child will do 30+ science activities and demonstrations including:

Day 1> Atomic Monsters!

We start the day by diving into some gory details about our blood. Then we discover the life cycle behind a popular Halloween decoration – the pumpkin lantern! We harness the power of static electricity to make a ghost fly around our spooky haunted house.
Blood Making
– We explore the make-up of blood and then make our own gory blood sample.
Pumpkin Life Cycle We discover the life cycle behind spooky pumpkin lanterns and make a pumpkin life cycle model.
Haunted House – The children experiment with shocking static electricity and make their own petrifyingly haunted ghost house.
The Fun Zone – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 2> Gory Genius!

Our scientific geniuses become ghoulish chemists for the day as they create an acid/base volcanic eruption, explore stretchy, gooey polymer slime and then investigate why oil and water don’t mix.
Eerie Eruptions
– We learn about chemical reactions before making eerie erupting pumpkins.
Spooky Slime – Then we investigate the power of polymers and make some glow-in-the-dark florescent slime.
Witch’s Cauldron – Finally, we try to mix two liquids that don’t want to mix and create a bubbling witch’s cauldron!
The Fun Zone – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 3> Trick or Treat!

We trick our eyes with ghostly optical illusions and then create a gruesome looking sweet treat before examining what makes up our skeleton and making a friendly model skeleton – Skelly!
Witchcraft Illusions – Our science wizards practice their magical skills and create a baffling thaumatrope optical illusion.
Viral Petri Dish Sweets – We then delve into the murky world of bacteria and virus and make some petri dish sweets!
Skelly, the 3D Skeleton – We end this day with a spine-chilling look at the skeletal system and put Skelly the Skeleton together!
The Fun Zone – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 4> Witchcraft Science!

Today we shoot rockets and examine how jet propulsion could speed up a witch’s broom and zoom bats across the classroom! Then we create a glow-in-the-dark spider web and uncover some creepy spider facts.
Flying Bats
– We investigate jet propulsion and launch some batty bats.
Spooky Spider Webs! – Arachnophobes beware! We take a close look at the world of spiders and make a glow-in-the-dark spider web.
Witch’s Broom – Then we take the jet propulsion theme further and investigate sending witches in to space with a rocket witches’ broom!
The Fun Zone – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 5> Freaky Fun!

The body is the focus when we ‘dissect’ a Plasticine brain and get to grips with a skeleton hand. Then we animate some jelly worms as they do a wiggly dance. We round off the day with a bone-chilling dry ice show.
Brain Building
– We get the children to use their heads and make a grisly brain model!
Manic Bone Hand A gruesome grabber helps up discover the bone structure in our hands.
Dancing Franken-Worms – We then bring to life some Franken-worms and make them dance in a bubbling liquid.
Mysterious Dry Ice – We end the day with some fantastic chilling and mysterious dry ice experiments.
