Transcript of Young Scientists
Biology is the study of living things.
What do all living things have in common?
Movement Respiration Growth Reproduction Excretion Sensitivity Nutrition
Production of energy in living things usually involves breathing
Making more of the same thing
Being able to detect changes in the environment around you
Clare the Chemist
Chemistry is the study of chemicals, what they're made up of and how they react with each other
Civil engineers design, build and maintain structures such as bridges, roads and dams
Steve the Civil Engineer
Can you match up all the structure cards?
Steve needs help building a bridge to cross the river - can you design a bridge to help him?
Callum the Computer Scientist
Computer science is the study of computing, programming and processing information
Callum can use computer science to guess your birthday!
Ellie the Electrical Engineer
Electrical engineering deals with the technology of electricity
Marine technology includes the engineering of boats, ships, oil rigs and other off shore structures
Mary the Marine Technologist
Can you get the ketchup packet to sink?
Maths is used everywhere but it isn't just about numbers, its involves shapes, patterns and sequences too!
Mark the Mathematician
Who thinks they can untangle these ropes?
Now try completing the sequences in your book!

Phyllis the Physicist
Physics is the study of matter, energy and the interaction between the two
What does a slinky sound like?
Why does it sound different with the cup?
Sam the Psychologist
What is psychology?
Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and its functions, especially those affecting behaviour
Psychologists study lots of different things, including how optical illusions fool our brains
Zoe the Zoologist
Zoology is the scientific study of animals, including their behaviour, classification, how they function and where they are found.
Animals can be classified into lots of different groups.
How would you classify the animals on your cards?
Mammals Birds Reptiles Fish Amphibians Insects
Pyramids of Giza
Leaning Tower of Pisa
Golden Gate Bridge
Sydney Opera House
Most visited monument
Has a glass floor
Was the tallest building in the world for nearly 40 years
Ground too soft to support weight
Used as tombs for kings and queens
Cost £1,200,000 to build
Took 14 years to build
Appeared in Inside Out, Big Hero 6, X-Men and Godzilla
We're going to go on an adventure through the world of STEM. We'll be visiting lots of different scientists and finding out what they do.
First draw what you think a scientist looks like!
Do they look a bit like this?
You are now all brilliant young scientists!
write down one thing you have learned today
What is a conductor?
What is an insulator?
What adaptations do these animals have to help them survive?
In your booklets fill in the table with words or pictures to describe the 7 things all living things have in common
So, now we know what all living things do, can you tell which of these are alive?
Draw arrows on the diagram to show where living things get their energy from
What is the difference between a solid, a liquid and a gas?
How are the particles arranged in each state?
Computers aren't as clever as us, they need very clear instructions. Can you guide the computer mouse through the maze?
How can we use the energy ball to test whether different materials conduct electricity. Think up an experiment that we can try!
