Franklin’s Young Inventors Science Club: Energy Transfer

Children watching science experiment with tank full of red dye

Saturday 22 May, 11.30am BST. Register here for this 30-minute virtual class.

Franklin’s Young Inventors is our weekly science club for aspiring scientists in Key Stage 3 (ages 11-14). We are delivering our science club virtually via Zoom on Tuesdays at 4.30pm BST or Saturdays at 11.30am BST. Participants will learn all about the experiments carried out by Benjamin Franklin and his British friends as well as trying their hand at practical investigations. This week we’ll be exploring the core physics topic of energy transfer.

If you would like to recreate the simple heat transfer investigation at home, you will need the following items: a metal spoon, a plastic spoon, a wooden spoon, a cup, a kettle, water, butter

Safety Notice! Make sure an adult boils the kettle and pours the hot water

Please note that the session will be recorded. A parent, carer or teacher should register on behalf of participants.

By registering, participants agree to follow our Online Safety Agreement. For more information, contact our Education Manager.
