In week one, curiosity meets science in this fascinating exploration of how explosions happen in nature.
From the smallest explosions such as seed pods bursting to massive explosions in space, this course will give students the opportunity to experiment with natural processes and extend their hands on knowledge of science. This exciting programme allows students to study components from Biology, Chemistry and Physics as they consider exploding plants, volatile volcanoes and the creation of stars. A focus on exciting experiments, space exploration and building rockets to rival NASA will nurture a love of experimentation which will excite students about studying science.
For week two, students will then join us on a time travelling journey.
They will learn how Geography aided in the seemingly unstoppable expansion of the Roman Empire, how Greek religion, myth and legend have shaped our language, and how the Norse Viking warriors became one of the most feared people in history. Over one week, learners will have the opportunity to study the Greeks, Romans, and Vikings through the lenses of Geography, History and Religious Education, culminating in a workshop where students can show what they have learnt to their fellow time travellers.
This 2 week programme will develop critical thinking and communication, as well as creative, numerical, research and presentation skills.
