Discover STEM through inquiry-based learning, with exciting opportunities to:
- Build on skills acquired each week and consolidate previous learning
- Collect and analyse data
- Design solutions to real-world STEM challenges
- Work as part of a team with like-minded peers
Participants will receive a certificate at the completion of the series
Suits 8 to 16 year olds and held over 6 weeks.
Discover how an Ozobot uses sensors and programming to engage with its environment. Then learn to use Ozobot’s colour code language to create a sequence of steps instructing their Ozobot through a puzzling challenge
|Monday 9/3||Experimental design
Learn the fundamentals of how to conduct your own scientific experiment. Explore how changing and controlling variables can help you to make your own unique discoveries.
|Monday 16/3||littleBits designers
Students will use littleBits electronic modules and the Innovation Cycle of Need-Think-Make-Try-Refine to design a prototype electronic machine. Real world engineering and tinkering.
|Monday 23/3||CSI Forensic Science
An ancient Egyptian urn has been stolen from a museum and there are several people suspected of the heist. Using science inquiry skills, students investigate the evidence collected from a crime scene, making observations, analyse results and develop explanations based on the evidence.
|Monday 30/3||littleBits advanced
Build on your previous littleBits experience and work collaboratively to design a kinetic contraption.
|Monday 6/4||States of Matter/Conclusion
Play with solids, liquids and gases in hands-on experiments to produce incredible results. Students compare particle behaviour and material properties, detecting physical changes in matter and explore unusual substances such as slime.
Every Monday from 24 February – 6 April
