Kingston Carers take part in Science workshop!

The young people at Kingston Carers Network were treated to a day of interesting workshops run by the Science Museum. They each got to develop their knowledge of all things science!

The Kingston Carers Network used their Leader Award Grant from the Jack Petchey Foundation to book a visit from the Science Museum in London. The team from the world-class museum ran four workshops at the youth group.

Each workshop looked at a different area of Science. These included forces, bubbles and the ever-popular slime! The workshops were fun and their interactive aspects encouraged the young people to get involved and get excited about the subjects too.

In one workshop the young people were given the task of making a hovercraft. They each had a go at making one and seeing just how fast they could get it to move!

The investigations and activities put on for the young people helped them to see Science in a different, more exciting way. This helped the members to engage with it in a way that is more interesting and relevant to them.

One young person was so interested in the hovercraft activity they did that they wanted to go home and make it again, but this time experiment ways  to make it could go faster!
