- I really like our science club, because it is fun and I learn a lot. Luke
- I like the slime the best. Coming to the club is the best because we do it every Wednesday. Irelyn
- When we are to see what happens when certain substances are mixed with others. Great fun, exciting and interactive. Breeanna

Alpha Beta Services and The Crazy Scientist have teamed up to provide unique experiences for your children that are simply……..out of this world.
The experiences your child gets each week exposes them to many science concepts, skill development and equipment that they normally would have to ait until high school years all while having FUN.
Some of the activities covered during Term 1 include:
– Eating Slime and learning about polymers and chemical changes
– Making Flubber slime, vomit slime and more while experiencing elastic forces, textures, mixture ratios, measuring skills and more
– Bubble Mania: getting inside bubbles, making geometric bubbles all while learning about light, solutions and mathematical concepts.
– Mentos Geyser explosions: Physical and chemical changes were explored while learning about changing variables in experiments
– Crazy Rockets: chemical reactions, gas production and experimental variables were explored in style (and the kids took home their own rocket)
– Crazy Dinos: This was a MASSIVE workshop that allowed the kids to stand next to a 1metre Woolly Mammoth femur, hold a 1m Woolly Rhino horn and compare their own head to the life sized Sabre-toothed cat skull. They also explored MANY other fossils while learning about types of consumers, fossil formation and MORE.
Term 2 we will explore MORE Crazy Science.
Seeing is Believing!
Many kids learn by visual methods, in fact that is why Apple and many other technology based companies these days put so much effort into developing visual ways of learning. (iPads, Slates, Youtube etc)
The Crazy ScientistÂ®Â knows this, and with his 19years in education, couples highly visual materials with hands-on learning (which is called kinesthetic learning) in an evironment of FUN to ensure maximum learning takes place…….often without effort!
The experiences at Alpha Beta OOSH withÂ The Crazy ScientistÂ®Â occur weekly (some every fortnight) to provide children with experiences that they would either have to wait until high school for OR (dare I say) may not even get in high school.Â
We believe that maxium learning gain occurs when children enters an environment that is:
– Highly engaging with unique experiences (to stimulate their inner passion)
– Structured with a learning focus
– FUN and exciting
– Supportive for their needs
– Meaningful to their life
– Hands-on and highly visual
All these aspects are considered whenÂ The Crazy ScientistÂ®Â comes and delivers the Crazy Science Club.
