Activity Week Programme

Weird Science! – New science activities for 2021

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.
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 2 weeks before the start of the camps.

Day 1> Rainbow Research!

We start the week with a virus awareness challenge, what are they, what do they do and most importantly how can we beat them?! We learn about primary, secondary and tertiary colours and mix our own colour wheel. We also set up a walking rainbow experiment. We carry out an experiment to show that light travels in straight lines, but what if you bounce it back? We reflect on what happens and make a mirror sculpture.
Coughs and Sneezes – We make a virus model and learn why coughs and sneezes spread diseases.
Mix It Up – We learn about primary, secondary and tertiary colours by mixing our own colour wheel.
Hall of Mirrors – Light travels in straight lines, but what if you bounce it back? We create a reflecting mirror sculpture.
The Fun Zone – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 2> Deep Science!

We travel down through the ocean zones and discover the mysteries of The Deep in an ocean zone bottle. Next, we ‘meet’ an ocean apex predator, the great white shark. We discover what makes them such a great predator and then examine their food chain. Oil spills happen too frequently in our oceans, we learn how difficult they are to clean up by completing an oil spill challenge.
The Deep – We investigate the different ocean zones and create an Ocean Zones bottle.
Jaws! – ‘Meet’ an ocean apex predator and make their food chain.
Beyond the Sea – Oil spills happen too frequently in our oceans; we complete an oil spill challenge to see how difficult they are to clean up.
Deep Sea Slime – We investigate transparent, translucent and opaque liquids and make some Deep Sea Slime.

Day 3> Blow Me Away!

The wind moves at different speeds from a gentle breeze to a hurricane. We use an anemometer to measure wind-speed. Then we try some tricky air pressure experiments to show that even though you can’t see it, air has mass. We explore just how powerful moving air can be and build a windmill. Finally, we investigate a strange air pressure quirk, the Magnus effect, and see how spinning objects can fly – even without wings!
Blow Wind, Blow – The wind moves at different speeds from a gentle breeze to a hurricane. We build a windsock to measure wind speed.
Renewable Energy – I’m a Big Fan – We look at powerful air and harness it to power a mini windmill.
Flying without Wings – it’s not just things with wings that fly! We make a spinning flyer from some unusual items.
The Fun Zone – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 4> Weather Madness!

We take a look at the sky and discover there are many different types of clouds, we make a cloud viewer and learn what different types of clouds mean for the weather around us. We examine one of the more extreme weather systems and find out what makes a tornado twist. Then we learn how rainfall is measured and make our own rainwater gauge. We end with an explosive finale – a Mentos and diet coke experiment.
Mr Blue Sky – There are many different types of clouds, we make a cloud viewer so we can become meteorologists and forecast the weather!
Twister! – We find out what makes a tornado twist and make our own tornado in a bottle!
Let It Rain – Will it be the driest summer on records? We make a rainwater gauge to help us find out.
The Fun Zone – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning. Finally, we end the week with an explosive surprise!
