SCIENCE WORKSHOPS

SCIENCE WORKSHOP ACTIVITIES FOR SCHOOLS & GROUPS

  • Polymer science--Slime workshop: Learn about polymer chemistry  exploring viscosity, temperature and non-Newtonian fluids. Followed by a slime workshop activity. 
  • Acid and base Chemistry: Learn about chemical reaction and make their own bath bombs to take away.
  • Chemical dye--tie dye reaction : Learn about  solubility in a range of solvents  and using this knowledge to create some amazing tie dye experiments. 
  • Forensic Science--Forensics –Children learn how forensics science is an important scientific field in helping solve crimes and in everyday use. They get to learn how to take their own fingerprints, identify and classify patterns, and make comparisons. Then followed by small group / teamwork examining tabletop crime scene to identify the culprit from Forensic evidence left at the crime scene.
  • Introduction to chemical reactions & states of matter: Mixing a selection of chosen ingredients together that will chemically react with each other to form a new product, or act as a catalyst to speed a reaction up.  
  • Circuitry Art—Introduction to circuits: Children form a human circuit using the bodies as conductors to get a buzzer to work. Following this children get hands-on working in small groups or pairs to create a complete circuit, using copper tape and LEDs, lighting up a picture (younger children-squishy circuits -using play dough) observe flying saucers with a mini handheld Van de Graaff generator.
  •  Genetic & inheritance--4 Letters -All the Base Pairs: Learning about the building blocks of living things DNA, children learn to extract DNA (from strawberry /other fruits), learn about inheritance and children learn to create a genetic family tree to keep as well as constructing a double helix model of DNA chain / or eye colour gene bracelet to keep.
  • Engineering & construction-Balloon Buggies: Learn about Newton’s law and observe it in motion. Children get hands-on to engineer & construct their very own balloon air powered vehicle and learn about the forces of motion involved.
