There is fascinating science to be discovered, even in everyday devices like lightbulbs! In this workshop, designed for younger children (age 4-7), we explore how we light up our world! Children can discuss with scientists where the electricity used to power our lights come from comes from, use their muscle power to generate their own electricity and light, and make a convection-powered dragon, worm or snake to explore how energy is wasted! The workshop is intended to complement Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 science topics.
