HOLIDAY WORKSHOPS FOR 2021

Workshop
The Young Lyricist - A Great Way to Improve Word Knowledge

Songwriting helps us to express ourselves in an enjoyable and creative way. We will explore different genres and learn how to set words to music based on the different themes and melodies assigned to each group. As we are familiar with the normal writing processes, why not challenge ourselves to express the same ideas within 3 to 4 minutes in the form of a song! This workshop is open to beginners as well so don’t worry if you may struggle with how to write song lyrics. With experience comes fun, so join us and unleash the creativity in you!

Workshop
DIY Science Champion: DNA, I see you!

Have you seen DNA in a tube? Do you know that we can do this using only items you can find in your kitchen? DNA, which is short for deoxyribonucleic acid, is essentially the blueprint for everything that happens inside an organism’s cells. DNA tells an organism how to develop and function, and is so important that this complex compound can be found in almost every one of its cells. In this workshop, you’ll make your own DNA extraction kit from household chemicals and use it to separate DNA from strawberries! Bonus: As a DIY science champion, you will get to germinate green beans and make your own lava lamps, too!
