Designed for Preschool – Year 6
Our Science incursions have been so popular we've had to give them their own website, to find out more, please visit www.scienceincursions.com
This STEM-based incursion has students mixing, testing and hypothesising. Have the camera ready to capture your students’ expressions as they catch the fog from dry ice, make polymer slime, create giant bubbles and defy gravity! Experimenting is the perfect way to explore scientific inquiry and cause and effect. We make it hands-on and fun!
We utilise students’ natural curiosity to drive discovery learning, as well as a range of teaching techniques to ensure maximum engagement, participation and interaction.
After a quick overview, students divide into rotation groups to conduct different experiments at each station.
Students are encouraged to develop a hypotheses about their experiments and at the conclusion of the incursion we explain the scientific principles with demonstrations and role-plays.
The Chemical Sciences curriculum covered in this incursion focusses on the properties of everyday materials, how their properties can be changed and how materials are classified. Please let us know when booking if there is a particular focus that you would like us to cover.
With your permission, students may leave with a small bag of slime: we will discuss this with you prior to the incursion.
Free pre- and post-incursion lesson plans are included in your booking, including a task for assessment.
