With the Winter school holidays fully in swing, the kids are surely enjoying a break from the early morning wake-ups. Alyssa and Aidan sure are!
This weekend we paid a visit to the Cape Town Science Centre in Observatory, for a day of discovery!
The Cape Town Science Centre is currently celebrating the International Year of the Periodic Table by hosting a jam-packed Winter Holiday programme which includes daily hands-on workshops, busking, demonstrations, Camera Obscura Tour, Science Shows and so much more.
Winter Holiday Programme At The Cape Town Science Centre
We arrived just in time for the Hot Chocolate challenge where we got to put our sensory skills to the test by exploring, as a connoisseur, the hidden flavours of hot chocolate! We made some fun observations and found some surprising combinations!
After the workshop, we explored the Science centre and had fun building, learning interesting facts and trying out a few interesting experiments.
It was our very first visit to the Cape Town Science Centre, so the kids really made a day of it. They needed to work through every station and were very curious about all the apparatus around them.
Luckily, there’s a cute coffee shop in the centre and Kurt and I took it in turns to enjoy a cuppa while the kids were doing their thing. I coupled my 5 minutes with a good game of solitaire.
As an announcement was made that the Science Show was about to begin, the kids flocked to the auditorium! I must admit I enjoyed this show just as much as the kids did. It also gave me a chance to brush up on some science facts! Science is actually a part of our daily lives and the show demonstrated this in such a fun way.
The Science show is just one of the School holiday Regulars, but there’s so much more.
You can visit the Cape Town Science Centre website for full details of their Winter Holiday programme.
This was such an awesome family day out!
Thanks for inviting us, Cape Town Science Centre.
