Science Stars

Keep Your Children Engaged & Entertained With Science Stars

As Leicester City in the Community continues to engage with the people of Leicestershire using new methods, the Club’s charitable arm is calling on schoolchildren across the region to try out their new Science Stars activities at home!

- Leicester City in the Community have created a series of engaging science-related videos for young people
- Learn science illusions, experiments and dances
- Young people can recreate these experiments from the comfort of their own home
- The series takes place each Monday, Wednesday and Friday

From bending water using static electricity, to making lava lamps, Leicester City in the Community’s social media channels are the place to find a wealth of innovative science challenges that you can try from home, three times a week.

Each week, a series of science-specific videos will be released to inspire youngsters to try recreating experiments and to engage with science alongside their family.

Presented by STEM Coordinator Dr. Alex Evans, young people can look forward to trying an illusion, experiment or even a science-themed dance across seven days. Every week will begin with Leicester City in the Community’s Magic Monday, which will include tricks and illusions that use the magic of science.

Wonder Wednesday follows in midweek, featuring simple science experiments that can be created using everyday household items.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Leicester City in the Community has been committed to continuing our support for schools through new ways.

Meanwhile, Friday sees the return of SciDance, a fun dance learning experience, that now includes quiz questions to see what participants have learned from each session.

Dr. Alex says it is important to engage with people via virtual means: “During the COVID-19 pandemic, Leicester City in the Community has been committed to continuing our support for schools through new ways. That includes regularly producing educational videos for people to engage with at home. Science is such a diverse subject that there is bound to be a little something for everyone.

“All of the activities in these videos are designed to be easy to carry out at home using things that might already be in your house.”

The city of Leicester has made great contributions to the worldwide scientific community throughout history, so Leicester City in the Community feels it is important to keep school science as engaging and accessible as possible.
