2012 Fall Session Class Descriptions
Every class that we design at Kids Science Labs, begins with a fundamental question that is asked by kids everyday, and then hands-on science is used as a vehicle for engaging, discovering, and learning through actually experience, not just explanation.
Here's a sneak peak of the new classes we are teaching this Fall Session (Sep 10th, 2012 - Dec 21st, 2012)
Fun Science in the City (Science Fundamentals series)
Cities are amazing. In this all new series, kids will experiment with and discover core science principles of pressure, weather, electricity, building, transportation, recycling, light and noise pollution, and city construction. Kids will learn and apply physics while building planes, trains, and cars, connect real water systems, discover what is under the road, and even design their own rollercoasters as they get up close and personal with the science that allows our cities to work.
Kids will love fun science in the city and parents will love how we expand critical thinking and teach kids how cities work, are built, and what makes life inside challenging, all with core science that matters.
How Things Work Lab: (How Stuff Works series)
Another brand new series starting Fall 2012. Kids are always asking parents how and why, and now there is a hands-on science series to discover answers to everyday kids questions. From “how do rockets get to outer space” to “how do we see at night” to “why is water blue” and “how do our fingers move”. This all new series addresses the beautiful questions of our children. Kids will explore core science from the most relevant areas of biology, chemistry, and engineering and it will be cool.
Kids will love finding out how everything works and doing real experiments with real test tubes, lab coats, and microscopes, while parents appreciate having help answering those tough questions.
Toddler Discovery Science: Our toddlers will move from exploring How Stuff Works in the Summer to a new Science Fundamentals series. Our youngest scientists (Ages 2-3) will do brand new experiments water, density, touch, weight, and gravity.
For parents interested in further detail, a sample description of a single class in each of the five science foundations is provided below:
How Stuff Works
Physiology & Food Science
Scab Lab: What's that goo oozing from my bandaid? Students find out this and more in a scab lab where they investigate how scabs form and how bandages help them heal.
Creativity & Design
Strings That Sing: Children strum into sound vibrations in this class about the engineering of common string instruments and jam with resonance, sound waves, and pitch.
Liquidity Lesson: What is a liquid and how is different from solids? Students will explore everyday household items to understand principles of some common and uncommon liquids .
Planet Earth & Green Technology
Erosion Implosion: Kids learn about the strength of water, how our beaches are formed, and how to create barrier walls to protect our homes and environment from the power of water.
