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

Running each day from 10am until 3pm

Venue Address: St.Anne's Primary, London Rd, Godmanchester, Huntingdon PE29 2WW

Mon 30th July – Opposites Attract
Our mini Mad Scientists will unlock the mysterious powers of magnets and explore their daily uses, whilst learning that in science opposites most definitely attract! Trace the history of the science of magnetism and learn some tricks of the magnet trade – including our Mad Science Indian Rope Trick and our Mad Science Floating Magnet Test.... Test for electro-magnetic fields and then use what you have learned to build your own electro magnet. Continuing our adventures in physics, the children will get hands-on looking at the opposites of the temperature scale; building their own thermometer and witnessing the power of an underwater volcano. They will explore the importance of the fire triangle whilst launching our very special Mad Science tea bag rocket! We certainly heat things up in this thermometer-changing sand-shaking session...

Tuesday 31st July – Construction & Destruction
Create, build and challenge yourself! Explore all concepts of forces (the power of 'pushes' and 'pulls'!) and discover the strengths of different shapes. Learn how these shapes create sturdy homes and skyscrapers as we all become Mad Science engineers! Working in teams we will be building bridges, towers, wartime bunkers and even buildings – who can build a building to withstand an earthquake or even a bomb!? Then, all hands on deck, as we take on the mighty trebuchet challenge....

Wednesday 1st August – Potty Potions
Get ready for more exciting chemistry fun from the Mad Science Laboratory! Become a Mad Science chemist as you learn all about the chemical reactions that you may encounter every day at home! The children will mix up a (very controlled!) explosion and watch colours float past their eyes… They will get to grips with the properties of Mad Science Magic Mud and have fun building their very own Marshmallow Molecules! Finish by watching (and smelling!) one of our very favourite chemical reactions in action – but be ready, blink and you might miss it!

Thursday 2nd August – Ready Steady Go!
What do footballers, scientists and ballet dancers have in common? Explore how Newton helps us learn why we move the way we do and improve the games we play. Our mini Mad Scientists experiment to see how Science affects our sporting equipment, movement and technique. Then let’s twist and turn, spin and spiral, bounce and hop as we see how we turn potential energy turns into crazy kinetic chaos whilst playing our favourite sports! Piled high with fun and games – you won’t know where the day has gone!

Friday 3rd August – Mission Nutrition
Explore the chemical reactions that take place in your tummies every day...! And learn why what you put in them is scientifically important. What happens to your sandwich from the moment it enters your mouth?? The children will recreate their own digestive system in this exploration of healthy eating and nutrition. The children will also explore some important germs and bugs that can affect our bodies in all sorts of clever and dangerous ways – they will learn to avoid the bad bugs and eat the good ones! Then our mini Mad Scientists will take a hands-on look at the chemistry that goes on in our kitchens. They will hunt for starch, sugar and fats in foods and investigate a living organism that helps bread rise with a bubbling chemical reaction... Who would have thought that cooking was so scientific and fun!
