Fun Physics Workshop
FOR AGES: 5-12yrs (age groups of 5-7 & 8-12)
StarTime’s Fun Physics workshop is designed to take everyday items and transform them into magical objects creating gravity, friction, static electricity, kinetic energy, force, motion and magnetism. Participants will engage in scientific play to discover how these elements in our world interact.
As in all StarTime workshops, exercises and activities will be highly collaborative in nature, fostering creativity and end with students performing their favourite experiment to the group.
Popsicle sticks will make catapults for our “catapult wars,” Participants will create rockets powered by carbon dioxide. Magnets will be used to discover what everyday metals attract to each other. Of course, our favourite slime making will be back to discover the planets of our solar system and how they interact.
Professor Eis-in-slime will make his anticipated appearance and guide students through their day of discovery.
StarTime holiday workshops are designed to captivate young active minds and bodies, in an environment which is safe, fun, focused and compelling for children of all levels to express these gifts.
Our mission is to develop more empathetic human beings. We do this by underpinning our workshops with the values of; courage, commitment, collaboration and communication... and during our workshops we celebrate each time a child displays these values.
The program content is focused on developing fundamental 21st Century skills which are essential skills to “help them shine” in today’s connected world.
