This spooky Halloween themed 5-day camp is a science expedition into the spooky unknown and over the week your child will do 40+ safe, fun, STEM craft-focused activities, exciting demonstrations, hands-on, take-home experiments, team games and fun quizzes – across Chemistry, Biology and Physics!
Every Day – includes: 
Four Indoor classroom-based fun, hands-on, science sessions.
Three Outdoor ‘Activity Playground Breaks’ – Hence why our camps are referred to as ‘Science Activity Camps’.
Please note: the programme content and order may be subject to minor change.

Day 1> It’s Hallow Scream!

After a Getting To Know You and orientation session 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 plunge into the deep, dark ocean and learn how pressure affects density. Then we create a spooky shadow show and see how light travels in a straight line and try to complete the bouncing light challenge.
Camp Induction – Getting To Know You – Through games and activities we make sure all little scientists are prepared for a fantastic week of science fun!
Coughs and Sneezes! – We make a virus model and learn why coughs and sneezes spread diseases.
Deep Sea Monster! – We make a pressure-diving deep sea monster!
Weird Shadows! – We discover how shadows are created and scare our friends with a shadow show.

Day 2> Fang-Tastic Fun!

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, support the younger children, and stretch the more able learners.

Day 3> Fang-Tastic Fun!

We trick our eyes with ghostly optical illusions, investigate the contents of our blood and examine what makes up our skeleton and make a friendly model skeleton – Skelly!
Witchcraft Illusions! – Our science wizards practice their magical skills and create a baffling thaumatrope optical illusion.
Blood Making! – We explore the make-up of blood and then make our own gory blood sample.
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, support the younger children, and stretch the more able learners.

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 rocket 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.
Broom Zoom! – Then we take the jet propulsion theme further and investigate sending witches into 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, support the younger children, and stretch the more able learners.

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 re-animate some jelly worms as they do a wiggly dance.
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.
The Fun Zone! – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning, support the younger children, and stretch the more able learners.

Parents, don’t worry you get something too – you will also receive a ‘TOP SECRET Parent Handout’ that tells you:

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