STEM Phenomenal Physics ages 6-10yrs
Instructor - Saani Bennetts
Ages 6 - 9/10 years
Get your thinking caps on for some phenomenal physics fun! We will be exploring distance, velocity, force, gravity, friction, energy, simple machines and much more!
This course develops problem-solving skills, creative and critical thinking skills, collaboration and communication skills. But the best part of these classes is that they’re super-fun! There is no desk work and no dry lectures. Each class is specifically crafted to allow students to assimilate the information provided into real world everyday applications. Hands-on learning allows for the core concepts to become part of the child’s intrinsic knowledge base and not just a fact to be recalled.
We start our classes with an active warm-up game. This gets our bodies and brains communicating at maximum capacity. It also helps builds our teamwork and spatial awareness skills. Then we get right into participating in experiments that help us practice scientific methodology and understand fundamental physics concepts. After that, we build with our specialist equipment! We put the concepts from our experiments into action through building fantastic roller-coasters, gravity-defying mazes and more.
Here’s a sneak peak of the creative fun we’ll be having: www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLnuW0LA3oE. It’s all about practical learning through building, problem-solving, creating, making, exploring and playing together!
In this course, we will cover these core concepts:
- Conservation of Energy
- Pivot and Torque
- Simple Machines
