About

The day kicks off with a meet and greet with our enthusiastic Rangers before enjoying an interactive and engaging science presentation. In this practical and interactive STEM based program, students investigate the physical characteristics of objects and how they move such as bouncing, flying, jumping, rolling and sliding. Selected students will be invited up to dress in real science uniforms such as lab coats, goggles and gloves whilst we explore the everyday role of scientists and their importance in our community. Students will laugh and cheer as they watch this engaging presentation all whilst learning about objects and how they move.

Syllabus Content Focus

Key inquiry questions answered:

  • What causes objects to move in different ways?

Movement of objects
Students:

  • observe the way a variety of familiar objects move, for example: (ACSSU005)
    • sliding
    • rolling
    • spinning
    • bouncing
  • observe the effects of push and pull forces on familiar objects, for example: (ACSSU033)
    • changes in motion, eg starting, stopping, changing speed or direction
    • changes in shape, eg stretching, breaking
  • participate in guided investigations to explore how particular objects move on land, water and/or in the air, and how these objects are affected by forces (ACTDEK002)

Day Outline

Introductory Presentation The day kicks off with a meet and greet with our enthusiastic Rangers before enjoying an interactive and engaging presentation.
(approx. 30-40 minutes)
Grouping: Students are divided into two groups. Students are allocated a Ranger guide for each activity. Each activity is on a rotational basis.
Activity 1 Students participate in each activity for approximately 40 minutes.
Activity 2 Students participate in each activity for approximately 40 minutes.

Activities

Please select which 2 of the 3 activities we have available during your booking request.

ACTIVITY 1: Slime Bonanza – TOP PICK
Students will LOVE getting their hands all dirty and slimy with this activity. Here students will be changing the shape of an object by applying a force to it such as squashing and stretching it. Students will be stretching the slime, and punching it to compact the slime to identify the properties of forces. The best part= students get to take the slime home with them.

ACTIVITY 2: Launching Air Pressure Rockets – TOP PICK
Ever dreamed of launching a rocket so far up into the atmosphere you couldn’t see it? Focusing on ‘flying’ we bring the fun to you! Students design and build their very own rocket before launching their spacecraft into the sky above the rooftops using a specially designed high pressure industrial rocket launcher. Guaranteed to get the adrenaline pumping, students will watch in awe as they witness their rockets roar into the sky. Through championship competitions with their friends, students will monitor the highest rockets, learning how each shape and design affects movement. A unique, engaging and action-packed activity focusing on pressure and its effects on every day materials.

ACTIVITY 3: Billy Cart Championships
Students in teams will be racing against each other on a race course with our custom-made billy carts. Students observe how objects with wheels move such as rolling. This fantastic experience will enable your students to learn how to conquer forces whilst working together in teams building their communication skills, balance and fitness
