Junior Scientist

Available Term 3
Young children learn best through doing. Abstract thoughts and concepts are difficult for them to grasp because they primarily learn about the world around them by experiencing it through their senses. For this reason it is important to focus science around things that they can see, hear, touch, taste, and smell so that they are continually immersed in science as they discover all sorts of new and different things about the world around them, how things work, and about themselves and others. These types of discoveries are science in a very real way.
By providing plenty of opportunities for our children to experience things in a hands-on way, we will encourage and increase their curiosity and soon everything they encounter will become an important science investigation!
Through the Junior Scientist course we will offer fun, exciting and interesting opportunities for our pupils to explore science through experiments and investigations.
There will also be opportunities to increase concentration power and sharpen pupils’ focus, as the children explore optical illusions, their construction and they attempt to create their own versions of the mind-boggling creations.
