Please note that this is a kid-only camp. 

We use electricity every day and almost every minute of the day. It is important that we understand what it is and how it behaves. In this camp, we will explore the physics and engineering aspect of electricity and electrical systems. The camp includes a tour of theYS science Centre, a science show, workshop and a DIY section where each participant builds a table lamp and takes it home!

Theme: Electricity, Home Wiring, DIY - build a table lamp stand using PVC.

DIY Project: 

  • Each participant will be building a table lamp stand.
  • We will use PVC and the kids will be trained in the necessary skills

Camp Philosophy

Camp Philosophy

Young-Scientist. in ensures that at least 50% of its programs contain hands-on activities. We believe that learning is best when immediately reinforced by a visual and tangible lesson. Some of the experiments we do are demonstrations for the safety of the children. However, none of our workshops is "pure theory/lecture", unless otherwise stated. We encourage the children's active participation in experiments/activities whenever possible.

  • The key concepts per session will be kept minimal and simple.
  • They will be reinforced repeatedly, along with experiments, to achieve the desired learning outcomes.
  • Experiments and activities will be distributed over the duration of the session.
  • Theory sessions will be brief and serve to connect the different activities.
  • Videos and animations will be employed whenever possible.
  • Worksheets and Observation sheets will be provided wherever necessary.
