Physics Lab
Little House of Science invites the Little and Young Scientists to explore the fascinating world of Physics. On day 1, we cover what are atoms, quarks and neutrinos and why we study them?  We will teach about forces, the laws of motion, light, sound and temperature, we will also test hypotheses and learn various scientific laws.  On day 2, the children will get familiar with the work of Isaac Newton, Galileo Galilei, Archimedes, Albert Einstein, Michael Faraday, Nikola Tesla and Benjamin Franklin.  We will also explore the laws of aerodynamics and will focus on astrophysics and latest discoveries in this filed on day 3.

Chemistry Lab
Chemistry is everywhere! On day 1, the children will start with physical chemistry and learn about elements, molecules, chemical reactions, reverse reactions, compounds and mixtures. Day 2: 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 3, we will learn about the discoveries of Marie Curie, Dmitry Mendeleev and  Louis Pasteur.

Geology Lab
Day 1: The children will develop scientific understanding of the Earth structure and natural processes (erosion, landslides earthquakes).  We will also explore the geological properties of the Moon and Planet Mars. Day 2: We will learn about diverse types of rocks, their physical properties and life cycles. Day 3: Will explore how mountains form, learn about plates tectonics and volcanos. The children will also learn about the geology of crystals and crystals chemistry.

The Science of the Oceans and Ecosystems

Day 1: The children will explore marine life and aquatic food webs. Day 2: We will discuss the dangers of climate change and the impact on coral reefs and sea level rise. Day 3: Our young scientists will learn about the ocean physics, water cycles and chemistry of water and weather.

17-19 July 2018        

Isaac Newton and the Physics of Light and Sound

Day 1: This science camp is structured around the discoveries of Isaac Newton: nature of light, laws of motion and gravity.  Day 2: The children will perform various experiments and explore the fascinating world of physics.  Day 3: The children will also learn about the physics of sound waves and the major scientific discoveries related to sound.   

24-26 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 3: What is special about the Table of Elements and who as Marie Curie? What are crystals and polymers? 

31 Jul-2 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!  

7-9 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 fist antibiotic, and much more. We will learn about greatest Eureka moments behind the most important scientific discoveries that changed our lives! 

14-16 Aug 2018     

Amazing Brain and other Wonders of Anatomy

Day 1: 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?  Day 2: 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? 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. 

21-23 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.

28-30 Aug 2018         

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. 

4-6 Sep 2018
