Meet A Scientist
On May 19th (Tuesday), join Science World online for a hands-on workshop for kids! This 20 minute presentation aligns with grade 2 science but all enthusiastic young scientists are welcome to join. Come and have some splish-splashing fun (rubber duckies!) What floats, what sinks and why? Pre-registration for this free event is required as you need to receive a link to join the session.
Science World has literally hundreds of resources for activities and experiments you can do at home. And don’t worry, the activities use common household goods, no need to source obscure items on Amazon. Check out some of the examples of the learning opportunities available on their Resource page.
- Air – Explore the impressive force of air and learn how air pressure affects your daily life.
