Activity Week Programme

Science Investigators! – New Safe Activities for 2021

This whizz-tacular 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 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: Fabulous Forces!

We investigate forces and see how we can use them by harnessing air resistance to make parachutes float. Then we become fearless fighters of Friction Force to speed up our model cars and then use magnetic force to race mini cars around their own designed tracks!
Ready, Steady, Go! – How fast can your magnetic car travel around your racecourse?
Car Friction – Friction is a powerful force, can you adapt your model car to overcome friction?
Parachute Challenge – air resistance is friction in the air – what makes the best parachute?
The Fun Zone – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 2: Living It Up!

We become body detectives and discover the hidden world inside when we find out all about our internal organs. Then we measure our heart rates and make our own heart model! We end with everybody’s favourite session – Slime!
Brilliant Bodies – Can you add all the body organs to the model body and then we make our own body model.
Super Slime – Our bodies are filled with lots of gross, gooey stuff – we make our own body slime. Super sticky fun!
Heart Beat – how does your body move blood around? We Look at the structure of our hearts and make a heart model.
The Fun Zone – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 3: Super Structures!

In a day focused on engineering challenges we compete in teams to construct the tallest towers – Easier said than done! We then design our own strong home to withstand some powerful forces. Then in a head to head with the Professor we use our knowledge of momentum to construct marble mazes!
Strong House – Using the science of strong shapes we build a house to withstand earthquakes and hurricanes!
Marble Maze Run – We see momentum in action as we race marbles in Marble Run Madness!
Tallest Tower Investigation -We compete in teams to build the tallest free-standing tower!
The Fun Zone – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 4: Magic Materials!

We explore the properties of some materials and find interesting ways to use them. We investigate how to alter or enhance a materials’ properties, then the children think very carefully about how to use some unusual materials to separate a number of different mixtures, then we investigate the properties of insulating materials to keep Mr Penguin warm!
Tough Ropes – What are forces? We investigate how to measure forces then make some rope and test how strong it is with a force meter.
Clean Water – We examine how a water filter works and then create our own to make muddy water clean again.
Insulation – How can we stay warm? We investigate the properties of insulating materials.
The Fun Zone – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 5: Journeys!

Happy Birthday, the Chunnel is 25 years old! We celebrate and investigate this fantastic feat of engineering. Then we discover how an aeroplane stays in the air and try to keep our own creations airborne for as long as possible. Then we take a much smaller journey deep into the brain to find out how messages travel from the body to the brain.
Neuron Networks – We’ve used a lot of brainpower this week – but just how does the brain work?
Chunnel Games – We use some Chunnel Tunnel facts to make a Chunnel Chase board game.
Air Journey – We learn the Four Fantastic Forces of Flight and have some flying fun.
The Fun Zone – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Remember – you as 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?
