Product Description

The importance of learning science at a young age

Science is certainly a very fascinating subject to learn as it stimulates children’s curiosity about nature and about what constantly occurs in our lives. Science also fosters children understanding of how things work. For instance, the human body, the universe, plants, energy, electricity among many other topics.

As children grow up in an increasingly technologically and scientifically advanced world, they need to be scientifically literate to succeed. Ideally, children benefit from learning the scientific method on how to think, learn, solve problems and make informed decisions.

 

Academic impact

Undoubtedly, there is a direct academic impact as a result of attending weekend science classes. The first noticeable impact on children is how learning science is an enjoyable experience and the one that the children will remember for a lifetime. during and after attending weekend classes, children tend to perceive that science is a ‘live’ subject that does not necessarily need to be learned from textbooks all the time.

 

Extra-curricular impact: the development of skills for life

Children certainly benefit from attending science extra-curricular (enrichment) science as we constantly instil and sustain the development of skills for life.

From experience, we observe that, over time, many children develop a good attitude towards science. Children develop universally applicable problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Children also develop other significant skills such as teamwork, resilience, self-learning, presentation skills and self-confidence.

 

The emphasis is on fun, yet we inspire learning about concepts through dialogue and questioning.

 

In this course, children will:

 

Learn the foundations for scientifically and conceptually understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.

Develop an understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help to answer scientific questions about the world.

Work on practical activities and projects using a variety of methods of enquiry.

Develop problem-solving skills, teamwork and resilience.

 

Topics include:

Something Fishy – Outstanding Organs – You’ve got Some Nerve! – Sporty Science – Cells and DNA – Plant Worlds – ‘Jurassic Park’- Bones and Joints – Ecological Science – ‘A Bug’s Life’ – Healthy Lifestyle – Digestion – Tiny Organisms – Colourful Chemistry – Food Science – Household Chemicals – Fossils – Fire! – All Mixed Up! – Rock Solid – Wonderful Water – Soapy Science – Edible Science – Biochemistry  – Atomic! – Acids and Alkalis – To the Moon and Back – Space (the final frontier) – Rocket Launch.
