In the ‘Young Scientists’ leading and learning group the main aim is – to allow the children to access hands on practical science experiences and to develop curiosity and creativity.
At our launch the children were provided with different resources you may find in your home for example, baking powder, vinegar, corn flour, food colouring etc. The children were allowed to experiment with these to see if any reactions took place. The children absolutely loved being creative and making their own ‘potions’.
As well as that, the children have demonstrated enthusiasm and excitement in every task they have had to do. They have had a wide range of different STEM experiences and opportunities. Here are a few examples: skittle rainbow experiment, lava lamps, design your own invention, explore beebots, scratch jr and ozobots, build a bridge challenge, Christmas themed STEM challenges to construct a Christmas tree from Jelly Tots and cocktail sticks and finally the children participated in Science Week and made interesting posters about ‘Our Diverse Planet’.
Thank you to the boys and girls for being super motivated and enthusiastic!
