Science for Grandchildren (Spring and Summer terms) (SCE 17)

  • Day and time: Monday 15:45 - 16:50
    Weekly
  • Length of course: 2 terms. Spring (10 Weeks), Summer (10 Weeks)
  • Number of places: 10
  • Start date: 11 January 2021
  • Description:

    Basic introduction to Engineering and the Sciences using easy to obtain materials like household items, supermarket supplies and recycled packaging materials. A course to teach grandparents to harness the enthusiasm and curiosity of primary age children, to create a lasting interest in science and fill your times together with laughter and learning. Play together and discover what fun science can be! I've taught Science to students of all ages in both South Africa and the UK, with a particular focus on primary school science. At primary level, Science isn't treated as a core subject in the same way as Maths and English are, so lessons are often skipped to make room in the curriculum. I feel this is the age to help children develop an interest in Science and the world around them as they're at their most curious. Anything required will be detailed at the start of the course.

    Note: The Spring term will be held via Zoom.
