Kids Dig Science gives children the opportunity to discover stuff that is intrinsic to our life, it does so in a completely innovative way. What’s more, it’s loads of fun!

While birds have been flying for millions of years, it’s something relatively new to us humans and we rely on some important scientific principles to achieve it.

From thrust, lift, drag and weight to breaking the speed of sound, we’ve come an awful long way since Orville and Wilbur took their first leap into the skies. Join us and our puppets in our flight of fancy as we venture into the world of physics.

Kids Dig Science is coordinated by the Science in the City team at the Malta Chamber of Scientists. This season, the team will once again meet with the scientists to find out the latest in all things science, then cut it down to size for children above the age of 6. It was conceived to inspire curious little minds, to ignite their passions and foster creativity. If you’re looking for a way to inspire your children, Kids Dig Science is a must.

The simple and innovative way we approach each and every science subject, that is, with a comical, interactive puppet show followed by a hands on science workshop, means the kids get to learn important scientific facts while having fun. Our puppets and audience are in for a blast this year with topics like flying, fractions and what it means to be a scientist. We will need all the little creative minds we can get to help our puppets solve the multitude of problems coming their way.

Filwaqt li l-għasafar ilhom itiru għal miljuni ta’ snin, huwa kunċett relattivament ġdid għalina l-umani, u niddependu ħafna fuq prinċipji xjentifiċi importanti sabiex nagħmlu dan.

Tikkunsidra l-forzi kollha involuti, illum il-ġurnata għamilna progress kbir minn mindu Orville u Wilbur għamlu l-ewwel attentat tagħhom fl-ajru. Ingħaqdu magħna u mal-pupazzi tagħna fuq dan il-vjaġġ li ser joħodna fuq avventura fid-dinja tal-fiżika.

Kids Dig Science hija kkoordinata mit-tim tal-Festival tax-Xjenza fi ħdan il-Kamra Maltija tax-Xjenzati. Dan l-istaġun, it-tim jerġa’ jiltaqa ma’ diversi xjenzati bil-għan li jsir jaf l-aħħar aħbar mill-oqsma kollha tax-xjenza, u sabiex dan jerġa’ jinħadem mill-ġdid għal tfal li għandhom ‘il fuq minn 6 snin. Din l-attività ġiet imfassla biex tispira lill-imħuħ żgħażagħ kurjużi, tħeġġeġ il-passjonijiet tagħhom u trawwem il-kreattività. ‘Kids Dig Science’ hija tassew attività perfetta għal dawk li dejjem qed ifittxu attivitajiet li jinkoraġixxu entużjażmu fit-tfal tagħhom għal diversi suġġetti.

Bil-mod sempliċi u innovattiv li nittrattaw kull suġġett xjentifiku; jiġifieri permezz ta’ preżentazzjoni interattiva bil-pupazzi, b’laqta komika segwita minn workshop xjentifiku prattiku; it-tfal ser ikunu qegħdin jitgħallmu filwaqt li jiddevertu. Il-pupazzi u l-udjenzi tagħna għandhom sena promettenti quddiemhom fejn ser jiġu ttrattati suġġetti bħat-titjir, frazzjonijiet u xi tfisser li tkun xjenzat. ser ikollna bżonn imħuħ kreattivi kemm jista’ jkun possibbli sabiex jgħinu lill-pupazzi jsolvui l-problemi kollha li qed jaffaċċjaw.
