EINSTEIN’S Top Secret Science will bring the magic back into science through school holiday workshops at the City of Bayswater’s libraries.
Kids can take part in the Mad Science program at Morley, Maylands and Bayswater libraries, where seven free workshops on slime, robotics, science of sound, bees, Dr Suess and germs will take place from July 2.
It is the first time Einstein’s Top Secret Science will be conducting workshops in the City’s libraries after hosting previous birthday parties in City.
Senior training presenter Danni Stocks, who has held workshops since she was 14, said the idea spurred from wanting kids to have “accidental learning” through fun activities.
“We find that kids reach an age where science stops being as much fun because it is not magic anymore,” she said.
“Just because you know how it works, doesn’t mean that it is not amazing anymore, it is even more amazing because you can do it yourself.
“That is why we have our programs in libraries and schools (which) sets up the kids later on to be excited to get into science areas in high school.”
While Einstein’s Top Science has catered for more than 1500 kids at festivals and schools, Ms Stocks expected to see 30 kids attend each workshop.
She said she hoped to continue delivering programs to the City’s libraries in the future.
Bayswater mayor Dan Bull said engaging children in science from a young age was a fantastic way to build their curiosity and interest in the world around them.
Meanwhile, there will be after-school slime workshops at the libraries in August.
