Slide Decks

Our slide decks support the lesson plan and are designed to be used during the workshop.

 

They include and overview of the topics to be covered, appropriate graphics, and multimedia, and descriptions of activities such as experiments, roleplay, teamwork, design and games.

 

At the end we introduce our Science Hero for this topic.

Lesson Plans

Our miniute-by minute lesson plans describe the 45 minute workshop.

 

They include an overview of the workshop, its
primary and secondary aims, the
list of physical equipment you will need to source eg test-tubes, 
a year-by-year mapping to the National Curriculum for Science, areas where we  enhance and extend beyond science in areas such as writing, teamwork and maths.

 
We include the Assessment questions from the take-home sheet.

Risk Mitigation

Safety is paramount in all ScienceClubz

workshops.

 

We have identified workshop-specific risks and stipulated mitigating actions.

 

Each Risk Assessment is tailored to a specific workshop's content.

 

It is vital that the adult reads and takes the mitigating actions described in the Risk Assessment to ensure the workshops go smoothly.

Assessment Sheet

Our colourful and fun Take-Home sheets can be done at home or in school. They include multiple choice questions tailored to the workshop and a topic-based Wordsearch or Home Experiment and some fun facts.

The Take Home sheets also have a "our Science Hero" Biography for the topic.

Parent Summary

A sheet explaining to parents what their child did during the workshop, the mapping to the National Curriculum for Science, a list of science and other educational enhancement included in the workshop and some advice on how they can encourage their child in science at home.

My two girls love ScienceClubz, they find the topics very interesting and it is relevant for both 6 year and 10 year olds - they even enjoy doing the homework (!), it has truly enhanced their learning.  I find the parents/home notes particularly useful as this helps me understand what they have covered, provide help where necessary and build upon anything they want to know more about.  The girls said the lab coats and safety glasses they wear when doing something practical make them feel like a real scientist.  The whole experience has given them a true passion for Science - thank you.

The Science of Smell

A number of intrepid junior scientists had a bash at the perfume design challenge and engineered their own creations.  If you look closely - the ingredients of one can be seen in the photo - try it yourself - it smells fantastic - Roll over Chanel No. 5!

This could be the first picture you see of actual life on Mars!

Who would have thought that when asked "Who wants to look at a dead mackerel?" the whole class would say "YES!" and pretty much all of them got hands-on to feel the feathery gills of this amazing fish.  The surface area needs to be large so the gills can get out the 1% or so of dissolved Oxygen from the water. Take a look at the short film snippet to see how and why it needs to use only DISSOLVED Oxygen!
