April (5-day Camp)
Day 1> The Heart of the Matter
We start the day by an introduction to one of the vital organs in the human body.
We examine the heart of the matter by learning about the basic concept of the human heart. We examine the functions, after which, children will draw a simple heart model. Heart related quizzes and games will be used during this first activity.
We continue learning about how robots can help in our world by creating a robotic arm. In this project, we learn about engineering, and the importance of machine.
We transform ourselves into engineers, and learn some aspects of construction. We demonstrate our skills by building a crane, a mover, and other simple machines that can help an individual live a better life.
Day 2> Sense “ible” Science
We start the day by learning about the five senses. We discuss how the brain works, and put our sense of reasoning to task using a simple game.
Is one eye better than two? We explore and answer this question by putting our pirate science activities into action. We will construct a pirate eye patch to demonstrate.
We continue with more pirate science by learning about floatation, density and buoyancy. We design a safe raft to would help people stranded on a deserted island to safety.
Day 3> Fabulous Science
During this session, children will be learning about the role of DNA through a variety of hands-on activities. We will examine what makes individual unique. This session culminates in creating a simple model DNA.
We will use the microscope to examine the DNA of some plants, seeds etc.
We continue by examining another unique scents and aroma. In this session, your child will create bath bombs/pot porri
Children will also take part in a learning workshop, where they learn about scientific facts!
Day 4> Light it up!
On this final day, we will start by assessing what we have learned so far using a FUN quiz.
For this opening session, children will learn about the application of science in growing crops. We will learn about the ideal conditions to grow crops, soil types, different types of crops, biome, sun etc.
We continue learning about light and electricity. We make miniature objects, and light them up, using the concepts we have learned.
We also create miniature thermatropes to reinforce the concept of light.
Day 5> Fun Science
We start by talking about where we get our food. We look at different types of plants and animals on the farm. We examine the role of farmers, and how we raise livestock.
We continue by learning about eggs (from chickens). What is the composition of the shell? What is in the yolk, is this nutritious?
Our final activity for the morning session is Fun! Fun!! Fun!!!
Children will become detectives and tasked with solving the mystery of the missing Easter eggs
During this session, children will learn about polymers, colloids and how they are used in consumer products. We learn about the science behind these products, after which we make individual slime to take home.
We offer 10% discount for Military
