Grade 1 & 2

Robotics for Grades 1 & 2 – Meet Dash – he is a fun loving robot that wants to play. Come along to this session and learn how to program this awesome and new robot. Through play and learning this robot will talk to you, follow your instructions and help you complete a number of challenges.

What makes a plant a plant? – Delve into the world of plants and investigate what makes a plant a plant? During this fun and hands on session children will look at every part of a plant through a number of experiments discovering the most sensational world of plants. With scientific microscopes the miniature world of plants will be brought alive colliding with fun and science. Some of the questions we will explore are: Are all flowers the same? Why to plants have stems? Does every leaf do the same thing? How do roots grow in the soil? How are soils formed?

Playground Push and Pull – Playground Push and Pull provides Grade 1/2 students with an introduction to the concept of force. Whilst participating in engaging hands on experiences, the everyday normal activity comes alive through the lens of push, pull and gravity.

Funky Monkey – This robot monkey has a feel for the beat. Can you compose some tunes, then program him to bang his own drum?

Grade 3 & 4

Pirates Treasure Hunt – Combine Science, Technology and Pirates and what do you have? The best treasure hunt of your life. As a team you have to solve a myriad of puzzles, clues and experiments to find the treasure. Be prepared to walk the plank, watch out for the exploding treasure chests, and use your pirate telescope to solve the mystery.

All Terrain Space Scout – Exploring the harsh environments of space is no job for humans. Build and design your own robot space scout that can avoid obstacles and navigate rocky craters, volcanic vents and steep glaciers.

Project Frankenstein – In the days before modern technology, Dr Frankenstein used human parts to build an unhappy creature. With today’s advances at our fingertips, we’ll design and build our own Cyber Frankie, and rewrite his story with a happy ending.

Ghost Train – The thrills and chills of this popular ride are a crowd favourite at carnivals and shows. What scary surprises can you come up with to keep the passengers quivering?

Spy School – Meet Dash – he is a fun loving robot that wants to play. Come along to this session and learn how to program this awesome and new robot. Through play and learning this robot will talk to you, follow your instructions and help you complete a number of espionage challenges to graduate as a super spy!

What’s happening here that I can’t see? – Have you ever wondered ‘what is happening here that I cannot see?’ Well come to this session to learn about the science behind mysterious experiments and phenomena. During this session children will perform lots of different chemical experiments, however our focus will not just be on ‘blowing things up’ (although that is so much fun!). They will learn the science behind what is happening and begin to understand the world around them in a new and deeper way.

Hunting for Dinosaurs – Fossils fascinate everyone, and so provide a great opportunity to develop science inquiry skills and interest in science as a human endeavour. Hunting for Dinosaurs will introduce you to the work of palaeontologists through a series of hands on activities.

Grade 5 & 6

Cheese Board Circuits – Using a pine board with holes and screws the students put together a range of simple circuits easily to learn about electricity, electronics and the components used. Students learn about circuits with power sources, controls and loads. This activity is easily adapted for students with differing abilities and they can work at their own pace. After the session they will have the ability to experiment with their own circuits at home.

Learn Programming through Processing – Students are introduced to the free software program ‘Processing 3’ which is an easy visual way to experiment and learn the fundamentals of programming with real code. Each student will be given a USB stick with the latest version of ‘Processing 3’ and all the examples used throughout the session and a place to save programs they have created themselves.

Geocaching Parts 1 & 2 – Please note that these sessions will be different so that students can attend either morning or afternoon or both. If you’re sick of being stuck inside all day, then join this session where you will be outside all day doing heaps of nature activities. Let’s get outside and….. Build a Hut,  Learn to read a compass,  Follow a short rogaining course,  Create a Geocaching course,  Learn about the local plants and animals from the area,  Find bugs & beetles,  Make a rain gauge,  Create nature rubbings, and  Participate in a backyard botany.

Robotics for Grades 5 & 6 – Experience a full day of Lego building and programming robots. These robots are awesome and you will be building, programming and commanding your own LEGO robot. Together we will follow simple steps and before you know it, you be in control of robots that drive, slither, walk, slam and spin. The session is portioned into 3 workshops: 1) Build your robot – everything you need is provided in our kits – of which you can choose up to 17 different EV3 robots to build! 2) Bring your robot to life – with the EV3 Programmer App you can program, play and watch you robot carry out your commands. 3) Command and play – remote control your robots and challenge your friends to fun robot games.
