SciencePlay Kids holiday classes are back these holidays for school aged kids! We are big fans of their classes for pre schoolers and the holiday program is a chance for the big kids to have a go too. This time we got to check out Dr. Loz’s brand new lab in Footscray. It’s bigger and better and it comes with a Velcro lab coat...
The video was taken at our class today which was all about microbes and the shots below are from the last class we went to. Each one is so different!
Dr. Loz, with her contagious enthusiasm for all things science, takes the group through basic science principles and then it's on to hands on experiments to bring the theory to life.
Experiments are different each lesson and today the class was all about force. The kids got to explore gravity and drag by dropping different objects from a height before using fantastic paint pendulums to play around with motion (while creating some cool art!). The last activity was the highlight though- using paint soaked sponges to splatter a full wall while Dr. Loz defended it with her 'force blockers'(fly swats). The kids LOVED it!
SciencePlay Kids classes go for one hour and have sibling discounts. Parents are required to stay. Classes are held at Footscray Community Arts Centre in Footscray.
