SEE THAT THE IMAGINATION OF NATURE IS FAR, FAR, GREATER THAN THE IMAGINATION OF MAN.

Richard Feynman

Children are curious beings and natural scientists. They use their senses intuitively to make discoveries about the world around them. Home, outdoor and school settings are wonderful places for children to experiment with materials, toys and found objects to discover the scientific principles of our natural world.


SCIENCE

  • Read and research vaccine discoveries throughout history

  • Research how scientists can find the source of an outbreak

  • Design a Rube Goldberg machine that is touchless, and serves people coffee

TECHNOLOGY

  • Write a Tweet to thank first responders

  • Create a video game based on a pandemic where the virus is the target and the player is the scientist

  • Create a Vimeo that shows how technology helped scientists in this pandemic

ENGINEERING-

  • Design a Covid ward in the hospital that will protect both the patient and the healthcare provider

  • Create a mask that gives as close to 100 % protection as possible but also allows you to eat

  • Design a device that allows someone to hug another person while both are fully protected

MATH

  • Create a poster that shows how health professionals use modelling graphs to predict the impact of a pandemic

  • Prepare a graph that shows Covid-19 cases in countries around the world

  • Create a table that shows the effectiveness of the different vaccines


THE IMPORTANT THING IS NOT TO STOP QUESTIONING. CURIOSITY HAS ITS OWN REASON FOR EXISTENCE.

Albert Einstein
