Early Years STEM Workshops

Float your Boat | Monday 18 February & Monday 18 March

It’s sink or swim at the next Little Sparks workshop!

Discover the highs and lows of density as you explore solids, liquids and gases that float or sink. We rise to the top with some unsinkable science demonstrations and hands-on experiments to ask – what is density and what makes things float?

You will design, construct and test your own floating device, using problem solving and critical thinking to modify your creation so you can load it up! How much weight can it hold? Will it stay dry or will it sink to the bottom? Let your little engineer find out!

Please note: Things are bound to get a little wet and messy at this workshop, so please bring appropriate clothing for your little learner.

Suitable for ages 3 – 5 years. Children aged under 3 are welcome to attend the workshop with their participating older sibling and parent/carer. Parents/carers are expected to participate in the workshop. Recommended maximum of two children per parent/carer.
