Science Camp

The science camp organized to allows students to be introduced or re-introduced into aspects of science that they have learnt in school through a fun, hands-on journey. The camp is a mixture of practical experiments /demonstrations, short concise presentations, and great take home projects.

Duration: 2 Days (3 hours each session; total 6 hours)


Day 1 (Under Pressure and the Light)
No. Activity 1 Introduction & registration 2 Science challenge 1: A different way to lift a Jar Lifting a jar of Rice without touching the Jar The big dripper Moving water from Bowl A to B to C without touching the bowls. Learning outcomes: - Introduction to pressure and its effects - Learn about siphoning Presentation: Pressure Diver in the bottle Participants will be guided through the process of making the Cartesian Diver Learning outcomes: - Pascals Law introduced Tea-break Science challenge 2: Separating colours Chromatography of whiteboard marker colours Making a rainbow spinner Participants get a chance to make a colour wheel and explore aspects of light Learning outcomes: - Introduction to simple chromatography - Learn the colours of the rainbow Presentation: Colours Kaleidoscope Participants will be guided through the steps to making their own Kaleidoscope Crystal bridge and crystal garden Duration 10mins 20mins
