SNOW SCIENCE WORKSHOP
An interactive and hands-on programme, Snow Science dwell deeper into the science behind ice and water. The programmes offers an hour’s fun snow play on the slope and a choice to participate in 4 of out of 8 experiments.
Discussion points include density, friction, pressure and freezing points, and properties of ice, water, salt and other related substances.
Mode of Delivery:
Classroom session with educator provided; Suitable for Primary Students
Note: Choose any 4 of the total 8 activities to fit your lesson objective. Children must be 7 years old and above to participate.
|Rolling Ice Cubes||Discover how the different melting rates of ice above and below water caused the ice to roll.|
|The Exploding Bottle||Find out why water expands when it freezes.|
|Ice Pops Without a Freezer||Find out how different substances affect the freezing point of water and make an ice pop without using a freezer.|
|Lifting an Ice Cube With String||Learn how the concentration of solute affects the extent of melting ice.|
|Ice and Oil||Observe a demonstration that illustrates the different densities of oil, water, and ice.|
|Wired Ice||Learn how different pressures affect the melting point of ice.|
|Slippery Ice||See how friction affects the movement of ice across different surfaces.|
|The Melting Ice Race||Figure out how the different substances have different effects on the melting point of ice.|
