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!

Royal School of Mines

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.   

3-5 Sep 2018 (3 days)
