Sens-ational Science Club for Kids!
What you'll learn
- Learn how to think scientifically
- Get curious about their brain and senses
- Have fun with experiments
- Ignite their passion for science
- No background knowledge needed
Would you like your child to be:
- Excited by science subjects
- Passionate about learning
- Confident they can think like a scientist
Then this club is just what you have been looking for!
Each of the 6 action-packed sessions in this course contains a video, explaining the sense (or senses) I will be helping your little scientist to explore. Students will learn how their eyes, ears & other sense organs work to detect what is going on in the world around them, and how their brain processes all of this information. Not just a lecture, these videos include mind-blowing demos and activities your kids can try for themselves.
Each session also includes at least one try-it-at-home worksheet to give your scientists-in-training the chance to explore their senses in more detail. Stepping away from the screen, they will be making, investigating and challenging themselves to think like a scientist, and even devise their own experiments! The sessions are designed to be done once a week for 6 weeks, but feel free to use the resources however works best for you and your family.
Prepare for your child to be amazed, astonished and astounded as they find out that their senses aren’t as simple as they seem…and even discover some senses they never knew they had. You never know, you might even learn something yourself!
I can't wait to share my passion and get more kids interested in the amazing world of brain science!
