About the workshop
Children will be participating in a variety of demonstrations, group activities and practical experiments and will learn about exciting and enriching topics.
The Camp will cover the following topics:
· Sunday 22 March: ROCKET POWER
The STEAM commences with a look at the design and construction of rockets and the engineering and science principles behind their flight. The children will build and launch a selection of different rockets individually and as a team. They will learn about different forces, reaction mass and Newton's Laws of Motion.
· Monday 23 March: ARCHAIC ARCHAEOLOGY
Archaeology is the study of how people and civilizations lived in the past. In Monday's session, the children will recreate fossilized feces, examine the dietary habits of the past and make their own cave painting… and more. They will travel back in time from the prehistoric to more contemporary times and learn about different scientific, art, engineering and mathematics principles.
· Tuesday 24 March: A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Sustainability and the protection of the environment is an ever-increasing concern for everyone. In Tuesday's session, the children will innovate and create new solutions to help the environment. The children will build their own eco-friendly home, roof garden, wind turbine, and air filter as they learn about scientific concepts behind climate change.
· Wednesday 25 March: NATURAL DISASTERS
Earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides, and volcanic eruptions are all examples of natural disasters. On Wednesday's session, the children will learn about the causes of natural disasters and how STEAM professionals monitor and reduce the amount of damage from natural disasters. They will recreate a landslide and earthquake, construct a flood barrier… and much more.
· Thursday 26 March: OCEANOGRAPHY
Oceanography is the study of the ocean, including its ecosystems, waves, and tides. In our final session of the week, the children will model the different layers of the ocean, investigate the effects of waves on beaches and erosion. They will also dissect a fish to learn about its anatomy and physiology.
