Seeing and making science work

Last weekend was a fun time at Kaleidoscope: We had the first of the science experiments workshop conducted by Yardstick , a group dedicated to creating experiential learning activities for science education.

The children made a balloon powered car, a water pump, a hovercraft and a flute. On the way, they befriended several principles of physics. “Awesome!”, “Such fun!” and “Wow, cool” were just some of the things we heard the kids say.

We have two more workshops to go, this weekend and the next.

Do join in for a hands-on, experiential encounter with science.

Planned for upcoming sessions: Weighing scale, periscope, solar cooker, magnetic levitation, electromagnet, test for nutrients and ink chromatography.
