On April 26, we are excited to welcome the Scientist in the School program again, this time to support the Science curriculum in Grade 1-3.
There will be lots of hands-on learning going on for everyone and a great opportunity to enhance the Science program that is going on in our Primary classrooms.
Grade 1-Structures under Construction
Join our engineering team and build a structure capable of supporting yourself. Discover the concepts you will need to make this happen. Explore the role of fasteners with different materials using real tools. Examine a variety of natural and man-made materials and learn their properties. Build a framework and test it for strength and stability.
Grade 2-Move It!
As masters of all that move, discover how simple machines make work easier. Motor along as you construct your own car while exploring wheels and axles. Go fishing to experiment with levers. Raise the flag using a pulley. Investigate wedges to discover what doorstops and airplanes have in common. Make your own screw and drive a car to learn about inclined planes.
Grade 3-Toys and Technology Fun with PhysicsJoin Penny Penguin on an amazing adventure through Toy land. Explore simple machines and forces as you help Penny waddle safely down an inclined plane and use a lever to catapult across an oily river. You and Penny will discover how friction can help her climb a mountain and that a pulley can make work easier. Investigate centre of gravity so that Eddie the Eagle can once again balance on his beak.
Parent volunteers and welcome to help us so let you teacher know if you can join us for the morning or afternoon.
Science is fun! We love learning!
