Date Activity
Monday 24/2 Welcome/Ozobots
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.
