Station-based science activities
This science workshop utilises stations based around push and pull forces, gravity and energy change.
Designed to complement the Physical Phenomena content strand for Early Stage 1 and Stage 1, your students investigate energy and use their senses to discover how the science activities and toys operate. 

OPTION: We can concentrate on 'push and pull forces' only if required.
A great way to expand your physical phenomena science unit!

All students were totally engaged in the hands-on activities and extremely attentive during the demonstrations. Well planned, age appropriate and promoted higher order and lateral thinking.
Highly recommended.
