Dry Ice

The States of Matter - 50-60 minutes

 The children will discover what sublimation is (solid to gas) by putting dry ice (solid carbon dioxide) in balloons. They will instantly freeze water vapour by making clouds with dry ice and discover when carbon dioxide is absorbed into water a weak acid is formed (acid rain) by using a pH indicator. This is followed by making smoking bubbles just for fun.

DRY ICE VOLCANOS - 50-60 minutes

The children will learn all about volcanos by making dry ice volcanos in small groups. Using dry ice makes the volcanos rumble before erupting to simulate at an earthquake and produce a large cloud before the lava flow.

The States of Matter with Volcanos - 90 minutes

The children will discover what sublimation is (solid to gas) by putting dry ice (solid carbon dioxide) in balloons. They will instantly freeze water vapour by making clouds and discover when carbon dioxide is absorbed into water a weak acid is formed (acid rain) by using a pH indicator. This is followed by 45 minutes of making dry ice volcanos in small groups.

  • Brilliant from start to finish!! The children loved it, and the grandparents were equally entertained! Great value for money too. All I needed to do was feed them! Even tidied up before you went home! We have a pair of goggles here which I can post to you xx

  • My Daughter attended the Candy Chaos session at Bilton Village Hall today. Booking was very easy and quick.
