I always try to factor time in to run my experiments before using them in my study sessions or Clubs. Firstly, because that’s good practice, but secondly, because experiments can be different when using products at home. In school, I had wonderful technicians who would trial things for me, and check we had all of… Continue reading Walking ‘Water’?
We go through changes all the time, but in this session of the Science Unschool Club, it will hopefully only be the experiments that are changing – unless you count the amount of knowledge we have! Water is a fantastic demonstrator of changes of state. For something so plain, so boring – odourless, colourless, often… Continue reading Changes
I’m really looking forward to brightening up the day with some colourful science. There’s lots to do – mixing colours, experimenting with light and seeing some ‘magic’ happen. Light is white, but colour is produced by our perspective. If a material reflects a certain colour, or wavelength, of light, we see it as that colour. … Continue reading Colour

Obviously, there will be some egg-based challenges, but I won’t be restricted to just Easter eggs! I love planning the Science Unschool Club. It gives me a creative outlet – coming… Continue reading A Spring Themed Eggstravaganza…
The next Science Unschool Club is on Thursday 3rd March 2016 in Gravesend, at the same venue as before. There will be some more hands-on Science experiments and demonstrations as with previous sessions, although possibly slightly more goo-ing and less cutting and sticking this time (unfortunately even I cannot build a rocket to take us… Continue reading Things that make you go ‘Oooh!’

And yet, climbing is very tiring. Since starting Bioactive Learning, I have had to get good at a great many new tasks. … Continue reading Climbing…
