Slime Lab + Stomp-Rocket Combo @ Cool Planet Experience Summer Lab
July 12, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Friday, repeating until July 12, 2019
Discover the world of slime & stomp-rockets in our 2.5hr summer combo!
Kids will create their own ‘Stomp-Rockets’ that can shoot up to 50m high & then pop, stretch & make their own slime – discovering how nature can help us save the planet (think edible water bottles) & more!
This summer, your kids can don their goggles, their rocket launchers & lab coats to get stuck to our jam-packed Summer Lab extravaganza!
Part 1. They will enter into the strange & squishy world of slime! This kids’ workshop is designed to make learning about climate action & sustainability a fun & interactive experience for all ages. Kids will take a closer look at environmental science (think slime, goo, jelly balls & seaweed!). They will play, pop & stretch their self-made slime to discover how we can use these unusual materials to save the planet (think edible water bottles & sustainable packaging)!
Part 2. Your kids will discover how stomp-rockets work by converting stored energy (trapped air in a 2lt bottle), converted into moving energy (rocket thrust), by applying pressure (stomping on the bottle that is connected to the rocket!) Kids will learn about the link between climate & energy too – how clever energy storage & conversion can deliver clean & free power, capable of fuelling the world. Kids can design their own rocket to take home at the end!
All materials are supplied.
