4-day Mad Science Camp full of interactive learning and explosive science fun!

Running each day from 9am until 4pm

Full Address: Whittlesford Memorial Hall, Mill Lane, Whittlesford, CAMBS, CB22 4NE

Tues 3rd - Groovy Gears and Wonky Wheels
I bet you didn’t know that most of your favourite toys use amazing science to make them work? We will use bouncing balls, yo-yos, hot wheels tracks, gyroscopes, wind-up cars and other classic toys to discover the science of motion through fun hands-on activities. All hail to Sir Isaac Newton and his 3 laws of motion! Then we will try out different types of simple machines: levers, wedges, incline planes, wheels and axles, and pulleys. Assemble a catapult, investigate how inclined planes work and discover how a simple wedge can be a powerful tool. And did you know that the human body is one of the most efficient machines in the world?

Weds 4th - It's a Bug's Life!
Children get engrossed in entomology! Learn about their fabulous flying abilities, unique eyesight, amazing habitats and the way that they defend themselves against predators.. Next stop is the wonderful wiggly world of worms! Your mini Mad Scientists will work with magnifying glasses to get an up close look at the lives and habits of worms. Why do worms shy away from light? How do worms eat? Why should we love worms? All these questions will be answered in an exploration of these wonderful wriggling creatures…

Thurs 5th - Behind the Scenes
Sit in a director’s chair and discover why science is the real star on the big screen! Explore the concept of persistence of vision and how we are able to see movies. Get hands-on as we discover the science behind the amazing sound and effects from your favourite movies. Children investigate 3-D technology, and experience how this effect can make them feel like part of the action. Then, our very own motion picture will come alive with an amazing spinning praxinoscope….

Fri 6th - Clued Up or Clueless
Children use science to crack a case! The crime happens just before the Bustertown bake-off. Mr. Baker’s big, fat, chewy, chocolate chip cookie is sabotaged and his recipe is stolen. The case kicks off with a crime scene investigation. The children examine fingerprints, mystery powders, ink samples, and teeth impressions. They also practice their memory skills to create a composite! Analysing all the evidence is what helps pinpoint the perpetrator.… Remember, it’s all about the funky forensics!
