Hands-on Science Workshops
These 30-50 minute workshops involve all children do a minimum of two hands-on experiments. We require a standard classroom or hall, tables without chairs, access to water, and mains power. Please avoid rooms with carpets for our polymers workshop.
States of Matter (KS1- KS3)
Exciting dry ice experiments and “wow “ factor demos. Explore solids, liquids and gases, evaporating, condensing, melting, sublimation and freezing.
Dry Ice Volcanoes (KS1- KS3)
These volcanoes are amazing. They rumble before erupting to simulate an earthquake, produce a large gas cloud and lava. Discover plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes and natural disasters.
The states of matter and volcanoes workshops can be combined into one 90 minute workshop.
Polymers (KS1- KS3)
Explore polymers, which are found everywhere, from our food, clothes and even slime. Experiment with material properties, man-made & natural materials and create new materials.
Light (KS1- KS3)
Discover the energy waves of light from the sun, electrical bulbs and fire. Observe rainbows, prisms, refraction, colour mixing, colourful flames and photosensitive materials.
DNA (KS2- KS3)
Discover the code for all living life by making models and extracting DNA. Create an understanding of genetic coding, chromosomes, inheritance and defects.
