Everyday inventions and discoveries

Monday, 18 March, 2013 - 09:00 to Friday, 22 March, 2013 - 15:00

Children will look at inventions we use everyday e.g. bath bombs, shampoo and soap and learn how a discovery in science led to their invention. In Key Stage 2, all children will look at the science and apply it to make their own bath product. In Key Stage 1, the children will explore bubbles, balloons and polymer spheres then investigate how we can use them to propel objects, absorb water or simply to have fun with.
