Science club - Ellen Grove
MaD science 1 – the Managed Danger Project
Learn to be safe and successful with our Managed Danger science workshops (AKA “MaD Science”) In science, as in life, EVERYTHING IS DANGEROUS unless you learn how to manage those dangers appropriately. We will be dancing with electricity, and setting fire to thing with light. We will play with heartless robots, and explore the world of air pressure hovercraft and vacuum bazooka!
Science is dangerous, because life is dangerous – until you learn to Manage those Dangers!!!
You will need: hair tied back, covered shoes (most days). We will provide lab coats and gloves.
Proposed dates are Monday 29/04, (NOT 6th it is a public holiday) 13/05, 20/05 & 27/05/19
Proposed Times are 12:30pm Endeavour, 1:30pm Challenge, 2:30pm ‘open’ class
This will be my last science club for a moment, I want to focus on other projects such as writing a paper on gender and early childhood science education.
Cost will be $88 for the 4 week term. This will get you:
- Four weeks of HANDS ON/ MINDS ON science with an actual scientist!
- Comprehensive teacher notes so that you can go DEEPER at home!
- Educational professionalism from a presenter with 18+ years’ experience in science education.
(No refunds for any reason. Parents should sign up for the entire unit if they want to find out if this will work for their children. Missed lessons can be caught up online and materials obtained in following weeks.)
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.
