FREE EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES
With the help of the Discovery Centre Bendigo, children can enjoy these FREE activities near Woolworths Bendigo Marketplace for some fun and learning this Easter in Bendigo.
2015 is the international year of light – celebrate light by taking it apart! Using simple materials, children and adults can create their own device that will allow you to split up light into all the colours of the rainbow. Look through your very own spectroscope to reveal the hidden colours behind everyday objects like light bulbs, fluorescent lights, candle flames, and other objects that give off light.
This surprisingly addictive and delightful activity allows children and adults alike to explore the effects of moving air on a variety of familiar materials like straws, sticky table, paper cups and more. Visitors can build their own contraption to test in the wind tubes, or trial pre-built flying machines. They can get as creative as they want and we find that kids love figuring out their designs, building them, testing them, and re-building and re-testing over and over This playful and creative activity explores concepts such as design, trial and error, observation, gravity, air, turbulence and more.
