Forces and Heat

Explore heat, friction, magnetism and energy and inspire your students to love science.

RECOMMENDED FOR YEARS 3-4

 

This incursion challenges students to think critically about energy and explore its various forms in innovative ways. They will investigate heat, and discover how it can be used effectively as a source of energy. They will identify friction and magnetism as contact and non-contact forces, and investigate how different materials impact their movement.

Our qualified teachers are fantastic at tailoring this session to suit your focus so please give us as much detail as possible and we will make it happen.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Ryan was great! The incursion ran smoothly and the children absolutely loved exploring the science experiments! The biggest difference between Supreme Incursions and the rest, is that it's quite clear that the instructors are teachers and know how to talk with and interact with children! Will have you again any time!

We LOVED it! So relevant to our Science topic and so much fun! Andy was very professional and engaging and the kids were on a high all day. Thanks again!

The students loved Brent's presentations. They were thrilled to see him a second time ( 1st time 2 months ago). Not only did he keep the activities and presentation interesting, he also built rapport with the children and even remembered student names from last incursion.

Oakleigh PS

Absolutely. We were amazed at how well the students participated in the three activities we chose for the day, especially the Hip Hop session. We had a fabulous day. Melissa was wonderful with the kids. It was great to join in with the activities. We would have you guys back in a flash. Thanks for an amazing experience.

St Margaret Mary's

All Preps had a fantastic incursion with Ben last week. It was the perfect hook into our science unit. The program was engaging and at a level the prep children could follow.

Donna Hey

Just a quick note to say how fantastic Ben was yesterday at running the Making Recycled Instruments incursion at St Theresa's.
The kids were so engaged and the content and discussion has acted as a springboard for them to take into further learning.
Thanks once again!

Thank you Brent for your organisation and enthusiasm with our Billy Carts incursion. Our students had a fantastic time and loved the hands on activities you provided.

St Kevins PS, Hampton Park

The program was very open and choice-based, which allowed the students to explore what they were interested in without feeling overwhelmed or disinterested. This allowed all learners to feel enjoyment and success! We had a wonderful time and will definitely use the company again! Ian - the facilitator - was incredibly organised and worked really well with the kids! When we returned to the classroom, the students enthusiastically discussed what they had learned (particularly in regards to the vinegar/bicarb soda reaction and the magnets). Thank you for an amazing day!

Today we had Amy come to do the Billy Cart program. Our Year 4 students loved it and were totally engaged. Amy was fantastic with the kids and highly organized. Thank you!

Michelle Fernandez

All the students were all definitely engaged and also learnt many science facts as well. It was all handled very professionally and teachers were able to just observe without having to intervene or having to run experiments.
