Rotor Lab
Science made easy, science made fun!

Welcome to Rotor Lab

At ROTOR LAB, I am a Mum and a Scientist who wants to introduce young children to science and to stoke their curiosity and help them on this wonderful journey of exploration. I use simple, easy-to-understand experiments and stories to introduce little minds to the world of science. I have STEAM activities planned around stories where children have the opportunity to explore nature and learn about the everyday things that surround them, with a brand new scientific outlook.

See how your little ones can turn into little scientists!

!! We have currently paused all our workshops until the end of lockdown or until we can safely continue them !!

Calling All Little Scientists

 Our registration form is now available to download, but we highly recommend waiting until the lockdown is over to apply. 

We have new measures in place to safely conduct our workshops under the new guidelines received from Stadt Heidelberg - Please note the important information listed in our registration form. 

If you would like your child to attend one of our workshops or find out more about the workshops, please get in touch with us!

We would love to meet your curious little scientists in the coming weeks and months!

Be a Race Engineer for a Day!

Be a Race Engineer for a Day!

Coming Soon Version 2.0 will be announced shortly, with an added component of programming using Lego Boost! Watch this space...

What we do The little scientists become engineers and learn all about fast speedy race cars. They will build their own cars to test how the shape and weight of the car influences their speed. They will discover how the slopes of the racetrack/roads affect the speed of the car.

Learning for the Child Problem-solving; analytical thinking, gross and fine motor-skill development; imaginative and creative group play

Age Group 4 - 8 year old

What is really in your food?

What is really in your food?

What we do On this day the little scientists will discover all about the sugars and vitamins in their food. They will test different fruits and their juices to find out the Vitamin C and the sugar content in them. Through fun experiments, they will see how Vitamin C is so important for our bodies and why we should eat only a “little bit” of sweets and treats to stay healthy.

Learning for the Child Analytical and scientific thinking, fine motor skills, problem solving, visual learning of action-reaction

Age Group 4 - 8 years old

Coming Soon We will get more hands-on with the food in our food lab! Watch this space for more exciting activities on the food theme!

Lights On! With Fruits and Vegetables

Lights On! With Fruits and Vegetables

What We Do How do we light a bulb using bioenergy? On this day we will learn all about the different forms of electricity. Which fruit or vegetable produces more electricity? Are fruits better than vegetables? We also discuss how we use electricity everyday all around us!

Learning for the Child Problem solving, observational, critical and analytical thinking, fine motor skills, visualisation of abstract concepts, better understanding of everyday surroundings

Age Group 4 - 8 years old

Sensory Day

Sensory Day

What We Do On this day, the little scientists explore their senses, sometimes by not using them or using them differently. They look at how all our five senses are connected through our brains.

++ We pride ourselves in making sustainable science experiments, helping children see the fun side of recycling.++

At ROTOR LAB, we want to bring the magic of science to young children. We want to dispel the phobias surrounding science and show them how science is all around us in the smallest things. It is to enable them to experience the fun of questioning and experimenting.

​Join us as we fuel curious little minds and have fun with science!
