Online science making videos
Monday 15– Sunday 28 February
Children in Halton are being encouraged to have fun, to be inspired and to explore the creativity of science during a fortnight of hands-on science making.
Halton Libraries is launching fun science-making online tutorials for young budding scientists. The two-week Science Makers programme will launch online on Monday 15th February as part of #CelebrateHalton 2021.
There will be 14 videos in total taking young people step by step through exciting experiments such as lemon volcanoes, balloon cars, magic milk and spaghetti towers.
The videos will be available on Halton Libraries’ YouTube channel and links to each video will be posted on libraries’ Twitter and Facebook pages each day.
Halton Borough Council’s Executive Board Member for Borough of Culture, Cllr Eddie Jones, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for young people in Halton to participate in practical science experiments that are also fun and creative.
“Not only will our young participants learn about science but they will also be able to get hands on and have a go themselves at home, involving all the family in these entertaining experiments, perhaps prompting an interest that they will seek to develop further.
Our young people are future place makers for our borough and this is an avenue towards that aspirational goal, which may include engaging with the exciting science and technology businesses that we are proud to host here in Halton.”
Families can also pick up a free Let’s Make activity pack which lists the items needed for each science making activity from Halton Lea and Widnes Libraries via the Choose and Collect service.
