Session 1: 11.30-13.00
Session 2: 14.00-15.30
Date: 29 May 2019
Wednesday 29 May 2019
The workshop will be run by staff from the University of Wolverhampton’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Team at University Centre Telford.
Participants will be able to design, make and test their own rockets. They will be launched outside with an air pressure launcher. There will be a talk on real life space rockets, looking at forces and gravity and also a competition for who can make their rocket go highest. Suitable for KS2 and KS3 students and their parents/carers.
This workshop is suitable for 7-14 years.
KS2: Use scientific evidence to answer questions or to support their findings.
KS3: Develop a line of enquiry based on real world observations, alongside prior knowledge and experience
KS4: The calculation: weight = mass × gravitational field strength
Due to the requirements of this workshop, you will need to go outside and launch the rockets made by the children. We have an alternative topic for this workshop if the weather doesn't allow us to launch the rockets:
'Introduction to Robotics'.
Our University STEM team will bring Finch robots which can be programmed by the children to sing, dance, and light up diﬀerent colours. The team will use a simple ’drag-and-drop’ programming language called Scratch so that this activity is accessible to all. Learning Scratch will open up the world of programming to the children and they can use the skills they will develop in this workshop to code their own animations and games.
The Robotic workshop is also suitable for 7-14 years.
KS2: Use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs.
KS3: Use 2 or more programming languages, one that’s textual, to solve a computational problems; design and develop modular programs that use procedures or functions.*****
