Shadows, bubbles, animation and parachutes – Curious?
Posted on January 31, 2018 | By cdavieswoolsery | 1 response
Today, Alminstone, Ashmansworthy and Stroxworthy had a wonderful trip to ‘We the Curious’. Alminstone had a workshop learning about pulleys, cams, levers and gears. We used this knowledge to launch helicopters, fire catapults, making wooden animals move up and down and even lifting a teacher off the floor with one finger! After the workshop and lunch, we explored two floors of fun and learning. From shadows that stay on the wall when you move away, using virtual reality goggles, animating our own short films, feeling vibrations of music with our feet, watching a ball roll up hill, launching parachutes and presenting the weather forecast to name but a few. All the children were very well behaved and had fun being curious about our world.
