Through hands-on activities children will have a chance to explore the world of magnets and electricity.
See how magnets interact with different materials and each other and how magnets are used.
Using electricity they will make a magnet and using magnets they will make electricity. They will explore the three major renewable energy sources used in Tasmania and some of the challenges of using renewables to supply towns whatever the weather.
Suitable for children ages 8 – 12 years old.
This workshop is being presented by Colin from Science and Wonders and will take place at Hive’s Studio One.
This workshop is proudly supported by Hydro Tasmania and TasNetworks.
This hands on workshop is suitable for interested children and does not assume any particular science knowledge. However due to the nature of practical science an ability to follow the presenter’s instructions is required. If your child is disruptive, you will be asked to come and collect them for everybody’s safety.
Children will need to be at Hive by the designated start time. Adults are welcome to stay with their children or to leave them, but we ask that they are picked up promptly at the end of the workshop.
Hive, 50 Main Street, Ulverstone, Tasmania
