Rube Goldberg would love this!

Aimed at students aged 10-15, this science visit is all about design thinking to apply energy changes, momentum, gravity and friction to time-based challenge. Students will learn teamwork, fine motor and planning skills whilst discovering applications of simple machines such as levers, pulleys, wheel and axles and more.

Perfect for applying STEM concepts in a fun environment. The challenge provides an opportunity for fair testing ideas.
It is all about applying your imagination to re-purpose objects to complete a task. Opens up discussions on potential vs. kinetic energy and the essential elements of engineering. In addition, time will be spent ensuring that students understand how contact and non-contact forces affect an object’s motion. Newton would be happy here with this STEM content!

Important note: Parents may watch in the seated area of the workshop or wait outside in the lounge. At the request of Fizzics education, parents cannot walk through the workshop area and are asked to keep noise to a minimum if waiting in the workshop room. Children can walk over to their parents at any time, but Fizzics education asks that parents and younger siblings please remain seated. Minimum age 8 years.
