Science Ninja School
“Jedi Knight School—May the Forces Be with You! Prove that you have the mettle to master ancient forces in a series of challenges to test your Jedi spirit, intelligence, and patience!”
This a great week, doing all the fun experiments to bring you into the world of understanding true forces at work. With Rit Zbikowski from the The Edinburgh Academy Junior School you will prove how machines have shaped our world, build structures that defy the laws of nature and work in teams to outthink the opposition. Who will be the last Jedis standing? Find out as you learn and have fun this summer!
Monday : Can your machine overcome the forces? Levers, planes, wedges, pulleys, wheels in action.
Tuesday: You can make paper HOW strong? Gravity-defying paper bridge competitions, arch building, newspaper towers.
Wednesday: Take paper to the next level! Suspension bridge, cantilever structure comp., work on catapults.
Thursday: Finish catapults—launch party, set out arches and engage in battlefield siege.
Friday: Fire and Ice! Create match rockets that can defy gravity and create ice cream to defeat the heat forces.
