Pull, push, lift and friction.
Those were the four forces students at Cheam elementary learned about when Science World’s On The Road team paid a visit to the school on Wednesday.
“It’s a high-energy show that’s all about four different forces that we explore… with a whole bunch of different hands-on exciting demonstrations that get the audience involved,” said Kiki Kirkpatirck of Science World.
She was in Chilliwack with fellow teammate David Mora Perea. The two were scheduled to visit nine different schools in Chilliwack this week, from small private institutions to entire elementary schools.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s a group of 15 kids or 300, the students always have a “good energy,” Kirkpatrick said.
“They’re so willing to learn and they’re excited for us to be here. They know a lot already about science,” she said.
The On The Road team offers three different shows: How to Science (Kindergarten to Grade 3), Fantastic Forces (Kindergarten to Grade 7), and Earth, Wind and Science (Grades 4 to 7).
