The programme we are offering is called “ STEAM for Young Innovators”
This is an 8 week after school activity, where students aged 8-12 will learn basic hand building skills, and the creative application of scientific principles they have been introduce to in school and will be introduced to throughout this programme.
Students will have the opportunity to explore, problem solve and collaborate. The programme is completely hands on, and is based on a number of STEAM based projects that tackle and combines in a multidisciplinary manner areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, through creative ways of making and building.
Electric Circuit (an image attached)
We’re all used to plugging in our devices these days and getting our power up to 100%. But where does that electricity come from? With "electrifying" experiments such as creating your own electric circuit and also some theory, you will learn how electricity is generated, how it gets from A to B, and what we can do with it.
Bubble Maker (an image attached)
This class offers the opportunity to experience different materials (wood, metal, plastic ...) and tools (scroll saw, thermocutter, drill press, hand drill, soldering iron and all sorts of hand tools ...). Students will learn how to build an engine with multiple rotating parts, a motor and propeller
Pneumatic Lift (an image attached)
Humans have invented clever ways to get air to do some heavy lifting! The technical term for this is pneumatics, and in this lesson you will learn in a simple way how the air is used to do work, by building your own small pneumatic lift.
Solar Car (an image attached)
What are the clean and green alternatives to supply our engines and equipment with power? Learn about solar power and build a car that runs by solar energy!
Makerspace will set up a small working station for each child with needed tools. As for the soldering irons and over equipment, the instructor will demonstrate how to use them to students and will assist them in completing small tasks under close supervision.
At Gulf Star Sports we understand the value of sports and extracurricular activities, as such it is our aim to encourage engagement in sports and activities across the UAE through partnerships with schools and the wider community.
We aim to support children and adults in accessing a wide variety of different opportunities through providing extra curricular activities, holiday camps, sporting academies and sports facility management within educational establishments and other leisure and sporting venues.
