IT’S RAINING STEM
In this session we take inspiration from precipitation. Discover how we can predict rainfall, and why we might need to know when and how much rain is going to fall. We discover what it ‘rains’ on other planets and then come back down to earth with a splash to find the best materials to keep Bertie bath bomb dry.
No matter what the weather, we will hopefully stay dry while finding out what rain is, why we need it and how we can protect ourselves from getting soaked!
ABOUT OUR HOME EDUCATOR SESSIONS.
This session forms part of our special programme, just for home educated young learners, with weekly sessions of hands-on activities.
The sessions will last approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes and each week will be based on a different curriculum topic. Overall, topics ranges from ‘Plane Sailing’ (Can it fly? Why does it fly? If it can fly – how far can it fly? – an engineering journey) to ‘It’s Raining STEM’ (Discover how we can predict rainfall, and why we might need to know when and how much rain is going to fall), and lots in between. We will also have some free exploration time on a set of COVID-safe exhibits.
The programme will begin from week commencing on Friday 21st May, starting at 2.30pm and will run for 1 hour and 45 minutes. The programme will consist of 8 “standard” sessions and a final ‘STEM Party’ session to celebrate the end of this term.
