The school holidays are for having FUN! Most primary school children love science experiments to challenge their growing minds. Try these two science experiments at home with some basic household items…they are also beneficial to help children to develop their critical thinking and communication skills, along with enhancing the ways they focus and observe, giving them the confidence to form their own opinions.
Did you know that some penguins stay in the water for as long as 5 months? They sleep, eat and swim thousands of miles.
So, how do these flightless birds stay warm and dry in the icy waters of Antarctica? Let’s find out with this experiment!
Penguins have a lot of feathers that are densely packed together that cover their entire body. These feathers have an oil-producing gland that makes their feathers waxy. The wax on the feathers repels the cold water and helps keep them dry.
We hope you enjoy these fun science experiments!
For more exciting experiences during the school holidays, book into a Rocketeers session at one of over 200 locations across Australia: https://campaustralia.com.au/rocketeers.
