Wow it works | Balance and motion

balance and motion

In the “wow it works”  balance and motion activities , at the end , we need to apply newly acquired knowledge as to how we can balance a pencil on a finger  . Possible ? Let’s try .

Wow it works | Center of Gravity

center of gravity

In this wow it works activity , kids learn about center of gravity or mass on an incline plane . What happens to a ball on an incline plane ? It rolls down of course . But why? Here we get kids to build the gravity robot that literally “walk” down the slope . To be able to move , we first need to shift the center of gravity . But that would cause some imbalance , and that is precisely what happen to the gravity robot

Wow it works | MOE Singapore

The “wow it works” program has a close relevancy to the syllabus  dictated by MOE Singapore . We will use the “walkalong glider” as an example how this project can be fitted into MOE Singapore  requirements as “Inquiry based education” for kids .

Wow it works | Walkalong Glider

The Walkalong Glider is now available in Singapore …. brought to you specially by WOW !! it WORKS !! program for kids . Enjoy this remarkable thin foam flying objects that mysteriously levitate out of nowhere .

Wow it works| Ramps and spirals

wow it works ramps and spirals

The wow it works program for ramps and spirals actually started of as a Gravity project for kids . We wanted to show kids a ball rolling down a ramp or inclined plane and we wanted kids to guess what might happen to the ball if we increased the angle of the plane . With the understanding of what the incline plane might do to the ball , we wanted kids to suggest ways and means to slow down a rolling ball . What are the possible solutions can kids come up with ?

Wow it works | Balanced dragonfly

wow it works balanced dragonfly

This wow it works program for kids is also about center of mass (Gravity) .

Here we have photographs of a bird and also a dragonfly  in equilibrium . The bird  is something that we bought when we were in Australia in 2002 while the  balanced dragonfly , which is made of bamboo is from ZhangJiaJie , China , during one of our holidays in  2011 . We are not sure if these are available locally in Singapore , but you can made them yourself using cardboard . Noticed the similarities between the 2 creatures !!

Wow it works | Gravity robots

wow it works gravity robots

The “wow it works” gravity robot was inspired by the book , titled “Robotics” written by Kathy Ceceri . There are about 20 robotic  projects in this book . The book is  meant for kids age 9 to 12 years old . It is an excellent book to introduce kids to the world of robotics . The only problem  is that we can’t find the book in Singapore , except buying one on-line . Luckily after a few calls to the regular bookstores in Singapore , there is only ONE available at Kinokuniya at Orchard . So we picked up the ONE and only copy  ( oops .. sorry folks , you have to wait for them to replenish unless you buy it on-line )

The Wow it Works program is an enrichment  program  for kids . The Wow it works program is NOT  an ordinary enrichment program that you find locally in Singapore  . It is more than just a Science enrichment program .

Kids are naturally curious . They love to take things apart and to find out how things work . As they are growing up , they want to learn more about the world around them – the mysterious sun that  goes hiding at night  , the wind that they cannot see but can feel  as she blows on the face  , the airplanes that are so huge and yet can fly .  They are so magical but yet ,  amazing and  fascinating  to our kids .

 Wow it works | Help kids discover

The WOW it WORKS   program is specially tailored to help kids learn about the world around them and to encourage them to discover how things work   . The process of learning is to really getting the kids to apply what they have learned by designing and building models so that they can physically see and  experience what works and what did not work (and why) . The wow it works program gives kids the opportunity to design , construct and think , with guidance from the trainers .

In Summary , the  Wow It  WORKS  program is about

  • having fun . Infact lots of fun
  • Letting kids learn through the process of discovery how things work
  • Applying what they have learned by designing and building useful models
  • Gives kids the opportunity to design , construct and think

 Wow it works | Why this title ?

We specifically choose  “wow it works”  as a title as it has the following meaning .  The “Wow” signify excitement in kids . Its a strong feeling of  expression . Amazement .  The “It Works” simply means the design and construction of physical models by kids that actually works .  The entire process of eventually trying something and getting a physical model to work helps to

  • bring a sense of accomplishment
  • build self confidence
  • show others that they  (kids)  “can do it” too
  • Demonstrate “mastery”
  • physically SEE and  BELIEVE in their own abilities of what they  (kids) can do
