ONLINE Chemistry & Physics Series (Feb-March) 9 AM Start
Dates:
Mondays February 1,8, and 22, 2021 Mondays March 1, and 8, 2021
Location:

Online via Zoom

Age Range:
Grades 3-5
Description:

This is a 5-week online program that targets specific learning outcomes for students in grades 3,4, and 5. This series will cover Chemistry and Physics topics and PLOs.

Come get energized with our chemistry and physics focused term. We will be exploring what makes up matter by crafting 3D molecules, and mixing and separating solutions while observing the chemical changes in them. Experiment with thermal energy and the different ways it is transferred between matter.

Students will take part in weekly online (Zoom) sessions with our Outreach Coordinator.  Sessions will run between 45 minutes to 1 hour, and it is strongly recommended that a parent/guardian stay in the room to support the student with the activities and/or technical issues.

Class sizes will be small (up to 5 students), and families will need to gather and provide most of the materials and equipment for activities.  A comprehensive list will be provided to families prior to the start of the program.  Any specialized materials will be provided for local contactless pick-up the week before the program starts.

Information for Parents

Children will need to bring certain materials from home to take part in activities (e.g. pencils, notebook, ruler) to avoid sharing items. Any specialized items required (e.g. magnifying lenses, identification charts, materials for activities) will be provided by Nanaimo Science for each child to use and will be sanitized before and after use.

Children should be ready to be outdoors and walk throughout each Wandering School class. If extreme weather makes attendance and/or participation unsafe, Nanaimo Science will contact families and communicate options at that time.

Safety Policies

To help ensure social distancing, Nanaimo Science is:

  • increasing the ratio of Leaders to children for greater supervision
  • removing all shared items and providing individual activities for children
  • instituting rigorous hand-hygiene, cleaning and sanitizing
  • Children must be healthy to attend Wandering School – any child exhibiting signs of sickness, fever, or cough/sneezing will be sent home, as will their siblings.
  • COVID-19 Safety Measures will be in effect.
Hey Parents!

Nanaimo Science offers a wide range of activities aimed at children from infancy to Grade 7.  Check out our school break camps, Pro-D day camps and workshops, and Homeschool supports!
