Leading them in their investigations are Dr Whiz and his team of Science Investigators: Amy Aero, Barry Botany, Hazy Hydro and Sally Solar, just to name a few.
Some of their investigations will include:
Air and its power. How does air moves? Does it have force and power? How strong can a wind blow? Make a wind sock and anemometer.
Water, its form and shape. What causes waves to form? How do tsunamis occur? What happens when water freezes? Make ice cream and a “wave” bottle.
Light and the energy in light. How is energy harnessed from the sun? What lights up a bulb? Why we should not wear black on a hot day? Make a periscope and a solar powered fan.
Earth and its inhabitants. Who do we share our planet with? What creatures roam the earth often unseen? How old is that tree? Why do leaves always have a pointed tip?
Dr Whiz will guide the children to find out the answers to these questions and many more through discovery and exploration.
