23-27 July 2018

Meet the Elements: Fun Chemistry

Day 1: The children will learn about atoms, molecules, elements, chemical reactions, compounds and mixtures. Are we really made of star dust? Day 2: What is special about Hydrogen and Carbon? What is carbon footprint? Day 2: The children will start with physical chemistry and learn about elements, molecules, chemical reactions, reverse reactions, compounds and mixtures. Day 3: What are crystals and polymers? What are acids and alkalis and what are reversible reactions?  We will spend time exploring the properties of the most important compound on Earth, Water.  Also, what is special about Carbon and what is carbon footprint?  On day 4, we will learn about the discoveries of Marie Curie, Dmitry Mendeleev and Louis Pasteur. Day 5: What is special about the Table of Elements and who as Marie Curie? What are crystals and polymers? 

30 Jul-3 Aug 2018

Space, Stars and Galaxies

Day 1: All children are passionate about Universe, Stars and Planets. We will run a fascinating workshop where children will unlock the mysteries of the Universe.  How the Universe started? How old is our Sun? Do stars have life cycles? Day 2:  What are Black Holes and how do we know they exist? Day 3: Can we live on Mars and other planets? Let’s become astrophysicists and investigate the wonderful universe around us! Day 4: he children will develop scientific understanding of the Earth and Space structure and natural processes (erosion, landslides, earthquakes).  We will also explore the geological properties of the Moon and Planet Mars. Day 4: We will learn about diverse types of rocks, their physical properties and life cycles. Day 5: We will explore how mountains form, learn about plates tectonics and volcanoes. The children will also learn about the geology of crystals and crystals chemistry.

 

6-10 Aug 2018

Explore the Greatest Science Inventions

Day 1: This science week is designed to familiarise children with the work of some of the greatest scientists and their great inventions. Leonardo da Vinci and the flying machines, Galileo’s telescope. Day 2: Charles Darwin’s evolution theory, Alessandro Volta’s battery, Rosalind Franklin’s discovery of DNA. Day 3: Alexander Fleming’s discovery of first antibiotic, and much more. We will learn about greatest Eureka moments behind the most important scientific discoveries that changed our lives! Day 4 and 5 are designed to familiarise children with the work of some other of the greatest scientists:  Archimedes, Isaac Newton, Rosalind and Benjamin Franklin and Marie Curie, Katherine Johnson. We will learn about brilliant minds and Eureka moments behind the most important scientific discoveries.

13-17 Aug 2018

Amazing Brain and other Wonders of Anatomy

This week, join us for an exciting journey about the incredible machine inside your head! We will discover how the brain looks like and how it controls the body? What is a thought? Why do we laugh or cry? What happens when we dream?  We will journey through different parts of brain and learn about the importance of neurons and how memories are stored, what are neurons and how they form connections. Is the size of brain important on day 1 and 2? Day 3: What makes us different from other species? What makes us similar? We will also explore the power of human body and human senses. Day 4: Little House of Science will take your children on an exciting tour on human anatomy.  Day 5: We will explore different body systems and their organs. Let’s investigate together - Why Our Bodies Are Amazing!  

20-24 Aug 2018

Diversity of the Animal World (invertebrates, mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and fish)

Day 1: This series of workshops explore the wonderful animal world around us. Why is the world so diverse and how are various species interconnected? What are adaptations and what is evolution? Day 2:  What will happen to us if the bees become extinct? What are Amphibians and why are they so vulnerable to ecological disasters? Can we bring back to life the dinosaurs and can we, humans, survive without the animal world? Day 3: We will explore various habitats and why it is so important to keep our planet clean and healthy. This series of workshops explore the wonderful world around us. Day 4: What will happen to us if the bees become extinct? What are Amphibians and why are they so vulnerable to ecological disasters? Can we bring back to life the dinosaurs and can we, humans, survive without the animal world? The children will learn about snails, spiders, ants and other species.  Day 5: We will explore various habitats and why it is so important to keep our planet clean and healthy.  

27-31 Aug 2018 (4 days)

Aerodynamics and Simple Machines - Engineering

Day 1: This week offer a great mixture of science and engineering. The children will learn via hands on projects the scientific ideas behind many great engineering projects. What is force? Is inertia a force? What is friction and what is the difference between flying and gliding? Join us for a session full of discoveries about forces, simples machines  and the history of human flight. We will learn to predict how different forces affect motion and the science behind hot air balloons, airplanes and rockets. Day 2: What are simple machines and how do we use them in our everyday life? Day 3: From Leonardo's discoveries about flying to the modern space exploration and Falcon rockets, let's discover the science behind flight together.  Day 4: We will teach the kids how to think like an engineer and develop creative problem solving skills. The children will learn about various engineering projects, we explore the fundamental invention; such as a pulley, lever, and wheel. We will also discover different properties of materials and the main principles in architecture. We will get familiar with the work of James Watt and Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
