The kids could make necklaces using nail clippers (chopping straws into beads), see if they could lift their friends using a wheelbarrow, think about the most useful machine with a lever (Freddie's was a toaster), test if something was easier to lift if the load is near or further away, and try out different catapults. There was so much to do.
Afterwards, the kids did a talent show. There were some very funny acts, lots of physical humour.
Betsy hadn't been keen on going today, but she enjoyed herself. Freddie wanted to go, it's a big change from a couple of months ago. He wants us to lead a session on dinosaurs. We'd better get our thinking caps on.
