Fun Under The Sun with LEGO bricks!

Battle the heat and entertain your child this school holiday!

Fun activities to do by the pool side! Teach your child that learning science is fun!

Foster the love of learning in your little ones to set them up for their future. Spark their natural curiosity by learning...

  • Density - measure of mass per unit of volume.
  • Buoyancy - force that causes object to float.
  • Gravity - force which tries to pull two objects toward each other.
  • Displacement - the change in position of an object.
  • Scientific Method - formulate questions, hypothesis, and prediction. Do a test and analyze the results.

Prompt your child with questions such as:

  • What happens when you place objects in the raft/boat?
  • What makes the raft/boat sink?
  • Does turning and moving things around help your raft/boat balance better?
