Saturday 8 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 biology topic of pollination.
If you would like to investigate the parts of the flower at home, you will need the following items: a flower to dissect (lilies work best for this), scissors, tape and a piece of paper/card. You may also want to download this Taboo card game to test your understanding after the class.
Most suitable for Years 7-9 (US Grades 6-8) but all ages welcome!
Please note that the session will be recorded. A parent, carer or teacher should register on behalf of participants.
