Technology makes our lives easier but the convenience can come at a cost. How can you encourage the children to ask critical questions about using technologies in daily routines?
Design and technologies
We, at Little Scientists, had quite a bit of coloured tinfoil left over from the Easter eggs. And lots of very pretty boats started appearing. The designs varied, some of them floated whilst others didn’t. So we designed a challenge – build a boat from a piece of 30 cm by 30 cm tinfoil that can carry as many marbles as possible.
