School Science Workshop... Curious Kids K-2! | Fizzics Education

Curious Kids – Science of Toys

Curious Kids – Science of Toys

Discover the science of toys; push/pull forces, light/sound & magnetism

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!

Australian ACARA Content Outcomes:

The way objects move depends on a variety of factors, including their size and shape (ACSSU005).

Light and sound are produced by a range of sources and can be sensed (ACSSU020).

A push or a pull affects how an object moves or changes shape (ACSSU033).

School Testimonials

Croydon Park Public School

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.

Berala Public School

Students were very enthusiastic during the performance and discussed many of the forces explored following the show. All were active participants. [This] workshop was an excellent support & challenge to our 'powering on' unit of work. It demonstrated what we had been learning but also posed more questions and challenges. We appreciated the teacher workshop for professional learning. Highly recommended.
