Camp Topic Summaries

Sporting Challenge Day -
What do footballers, scientists and ballet dancers have in common? Explore how Newton helps us learn why we move the way we do and improve the games we play. Our mini Mad Scientists experiment to see how Science affects all areas of sports equipment, movement and technique. Piled high with fun and games – you won’t know where the day has gone!

Zip Zap Zoom -
Discover the dynamics of rocket flight – “5, 4, 3, 2, 1 – take off”! Discuss and explore our Mad Science rockets while learning how and why they fly – in groups, design and launch your very own balloon rocket race! And finally take part in a NASA-style launching of model rockets.

Mega Machine Mania -
Catapult into this day of the Science of Marvellous Machines. Pinpoint the 5 simple machines and understand the science behind them. It's all to do with that wonderful word = ENERGY! See how our bodies sometimes work like a simple machine - clever, huh! And go on to play and experiment with some more complicated and exciting machines. A day full of engineering and technology basics for all you budding engineers!

Superhero Senses -
Who is your favourite superhero?? What special senses or powers do they have? And what happens if they lose their special superhero senses….?? This day explores the fascinating world of our sensational senses, how important they are and how our favourite superheroes can use them to save the world! Children will also use their very own superhero senses of touch, taste and smell to complete challenges during this all-encompassing day. And, just remember, seeing isn’t always believing….! Entering the world of optical illusions, your mini Mad Scientists will explore how we can fool our senses – the science behind it will explain all…

Spy Academy -
Look out 007—the Mad Science Spy Academy is in session! Step into the shoes of a detective—uncover the science involved in evidence gathering and analysis. Using the power of observation and all their Mad Science forensic training, our young detectives will have all they need to get started with their investigations. Children will find, collect, and analyze evidence using all the tricks and tests of the forensic trade! Then, they will explore fingerprint and footprint analysis, and become experts in handwriting as they try their hand at some real life graphology…!

Funky Fliers -
Courtesy of Mr Bernoulli’s laws of flight, your mini Mad Scientists will make all sorts of things move through the air! Using our knowledge of forces and aerodynamics, the children will create paper planes to change direction and attempt loop the loops! Then get ‘technical’ as we introduce the additions of rudders, ailerons and elevators – pretty impressive stuff, huh. Find out the science behind helicopters and where we can see their engineering reflected in nature…

Wacky Waves -
Children make waves with Wacky Water and immerse themselves in some wet and wonderful science. Sinking fizzy drinks cans will introduce the concept of density. The investigation continues with liquid layers in the Density Stacker activity. Children apply their knowledge to real-world problems such as oil spills. How hard are they to clean up?

Sparky Science -
Children get charged up about the science of current electricity! They learn how tiny invisible particles — electrons — power everything from the fridge to the radio. All their problem-solving skills are put to use to create series and parallel circuits. Completing the circuit lights a bulb and sounds a buzzer. Once children master circuits, they learn about insulators, conductors, and experiment to find out what conducts. Using this new know-how helps our mini Mad Scientists to solve mysterious hidden connections.

Mindblowing Magic -
The Science of Magic leaves children astounded, amazed, and educated! They learn how magicians use our assumptions and perceptions about how the world works to entertain us. Discovering how to make objects disappear and reappear using optical illusions, polymers, mirrors, as well as hidden compartments, sleight-of-hand, and misdirection are part of the learning experience. The art of escape with Houdini’s chains and the power of perception with the crayon mind-reading trick are a few classics.

Kaboom! It's Che-Mystery -

See Chemistry come alive before your eyes! The children discover the mysterious wonders of chemical science. They learn the difference between physical and chemical changes through exciting, hands-on investigations, watch crystals form in a water glass and see acetone reduce foam to a puddle of goo....! Children get their hands dirty with a non- Newtonian fluid and use hydrophobic compounds to make marbled masterpieces!
