Science club - Ellen Grove
This term we will be investigating variables with string rockets, making and igniting our own rocket fuel, studying height (and speed) with the simple medieval technology of sextants, exploring re-entry with parachutes, discovering ignition with our own hairspray rockets, and finally testing out all our skills with the water powered rockets and their egg astronauts! This is a fun and informative science STEM unit that will get your young technicians thrilling!
Proposed dates are Monday Feb 11th, 18th, 25th, March 4th, 11th, 18th. That’s term 1, 2019.
Proposed Times are 12:30pm Endeavour, 1:30pm Challenge (please indicate if you’d like a 2:30pm ‘open’ class)
Cost will be $124 for the 6 week term. This will get you:
- Six weeks of HANDS ON/ MINDS ON science with an actual scientist!
- Comprehensive teacher notes so that you can go DEEPER at home!
- Each lesson represents a day and a half preparation, so you know you’re getting TIME for your money!
- Educational professionalism from a presenter with 18+ years experience in science education.

A note on classes:
Here at Creating Science, we want each and every student that attends to have the best learning experience possible – we even welcome and celebrate parents who want to join in and help! The homeschool learning journey is a deeply personal one, and in order to assist you on this journey we have two kind of classes on offer, however, we will always do our best to teach whoever arrives on the day:
Challenge classes. Planned with a little less talking and more doing, suitable for those who have difficulty with sit down learning. If you want to have fun through experiencing, this is your class.
Endeavour classes. We strive to go a little deeper into the content and material, taking time to talk though ideas and explore extra avenues. Lots of hands on here too, but if you want to have fun through discussion and content, this is your class.
