Virtual Birthday Party (4 years and above)
Our instructor guides the kids through the STEM activity while celebrating the birthday child! We sing Happy Birthday with all the guests and eat cake (optionally provided for the guests by the host) together!Our charges for an hour long program will be $175+GST for up to 10 kids. For any additional kids, we would charge $15+GST per child. Please let us know which date would work best for you. We look forward to bringing our program to you! To allow for sufficient time for the delivery of kits, we ask for the party booking to be confirmed at least one week in advance. To book or for further details, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 204-818-8335. Chemical Engineering: Sand Slime: Students will work as chemical engineers to invent their own recipe for kinetic sand and then complete a series of tests analyzing the physical properties of their new invention. Aerospace Engineering: Rocket launcher: Students engineer a functional rocket launcher! They learn how launch angles and mass affects the range of their rocket. Marine Engineering: Pontoon boats: Students learn how pontoons work to keep a boat afloat! They test the load their boats can hold with and without pontoons Electrical Engineering: LED Flashlight: Students build their own working flashlight. They learn about conducting and non conducting materials. Electrical Engineering: Magnet Skaters: Students learn how magnets work and demonstrate how the magnetic field can pass through a solid object. They build a toy for continued fun! Environmental Engineering: pH Water testing: Students learn about the science behind water pH testing through hands-on testing! Mechanical Engineering: Maze run: Students identify the characteristics of gravity and properties of acceleration through the manipulation of inclined planes in this lesson. Students design a maze that will have various inclines, testing how the degree of angle impacts their marble, and reaching the finish line in the least seconds possible. Chemical Engineering: Bubble bliss + Wacky Wands: Students will explore properties of a liquid during this Bouncing Bubbles lesson. They will experiment concocting two different bubble solutions to determine which one produces stronger bubbles. Explore how design of the bubble wand affects the bubble size and shape. Aerospace Engineering: Parachutes: Students will have to engineer a functional parachute for a test jumper that must descend gracefully after being dropped from a tall height. After the testing phase, which is an important part of the Engineering Design Process, students will be able to improve upon their design. Electrical Engineering: Greetings: Students learn how to create a flat conductive circuit path with a LED light feature. Environmental Engineering: Sun painting: Sun printing, or cyanotype, will give students the opportunity to closely examine an object in detail, as the object being printed leaves a direct contact silhouette on the specially-formulated sun print paper. Civil Engineering: Bridges: The Note Card Bridge activity will challenge students to construct a bridge out of a normally flexible material and create a navigable span. Chemical Engineering: Slime: Students will learn about the chemical properties of slime and make their own. They will learn about conductivity and test the different polymers. Marine Engineering: Paddleboats: Students explore kinetic and potential energy and create paddleboats that can travel across a tub of water Aerospace Engineering: Helicopters: Students will construct model helicopters. They will explore how forces such as thrust and lift help helicopters maneuver. Moana: Students build their own sail boat and test it against a strong wind! Frozen: Students grow crystals using Chemical Engineering, fit for Elsa! Three little pigs: Students build and test three different houses against the Big Bad Wolf. Billy Goats Gruff: Can students re-engineer the bridge in this classic? Rapunzel: Students devise an escape for Rapunzel, with slides and pulleys! Shrek: Students make Slime for Shrek! The Little Mermaid and Nemo: Students build a reef for their marine friends. Cinderella: Students build getaway cars for Cinderella!
