Summer Lab: August

  • Cool Planet Experience Powerscourt Estate Wicklow Ireland (map)

Discover our two most popular workshops this July & August in our bumper 2hr Summer Lab: Sustainable Slime & Stomp-Rockets

Kids will learn about the link between climate and energy by designing their own stomp-rocket to take home. They will discover how stomp-rockets work by;

-               converting stored energy (trapped-air in a 2lt bottle)

-               creating moving energy the rocket thrust)

-               applying pressure (stomping on the bottle that is connected to the rocket! 😊)

to see how clever energy storage and conversion can deliver clean and free power, capable of fuelling the world.

Sustainable Slime

Kids will venture into the strange and squishy world of slime and environmental science - slime, goo, jelly balls and seaweed! They will play, pop and stretch their self-made slime to discover how we can use these unusual materials as an alternative to plastic (think edible water bottles and sustainable packaging)!

 All materials are supplied.
