At Playforce we love science, maths and everything in between! UNESCO World Science Day was on 10th November this year and we were in the process of creating this sparkly new website, so we couldn’t write about it. But the fact is it’s a great way to talk with your pupils about how and why science is important in our daily lives.
There’s nothing better than learning while doing - which is the definition of science in itself. How did Newton discover gravity? How did Marie Curie discover two elements? The answer is through lots of wonderful experiments! It’s vital to engage children to perform scientific experiments from a young age. Maths and science is certainly not boring! It can boost self-confidence, hone logic skills and even improve creativity, among other things.
Here at Playforce we have some amazing outdoor playground equipment you and your students can use to do lots of fun scientific and mathematical experiments. After all, science and maths is all around us every day! So here are just a few of our favourite outdoor playground pieces...
