Every term at The Flash Bang Science Club our students learn scientific concepts through interactive demonstrations and hands on experiments whilst we encourage them to explore new concepts and ideas for themselves.
Our lessons cover all STEM subjects
- S – Science
- T – Technology
- E – Engineering
- M – Maths
Our term time classes and holiday workshops are age appropriate and offer our students an insight into key scientific concepts encouraging children to investigate and develop skills in observation, prediction and fair testing.
Activities can include practical experiments, investigations, group work, discussion and reflection, but most of all they should be fun. Our key aim is to make science exciting and accessible to children of all ages and to inform our students about science based industries and their role in our lives, past present and future.
After school - Saturdays - Holidays
Each week we introduce our students to a new concept and explore all aspects of our subject through practical experiments, investigations, group work, discussion and reflection.
Each term we cover a different variety of subjects as many of our students roll forward to the next term.
The subjects will include key concepts which relate to the main curriculum’s five strands
- The nature of science
- The living world
- Planet earth and beyond
- The physical world
- The material world
“Science is a way of investigating, understanding, and explaining our natural, physical world and the wider universe. It involves generating and testing ideas, gathering evidence – including by making observations, carrying out investigations and modelling, and communicating and debating with others – in order to develop scientific knowledge, understanding, and explanations. Scientific progress comes from logical, systematic work and from creative insight, built on a foundation of respect for evidence.” (nzcurriculum.tki.org.nz, 2015)
At The Flash Bang Science Club we aim to inspire curious minds to problem solve and investigate. We actively encourage students to think outside the box and to be brave, developing their courage to explore new concepts and ideas.
Science classes help:
- Problem solving
- Confidence and exploring new ideas
- Develop creative thinking – thinking outside the box
- Fire up imagination
- Team work and leadership skills
- Increase motivation to study STEM and enter STEM careers.
