Flash, Bang, Pop!
Flash Bang Pop (KS2) looks at a variety of different areas of science from electricity, to vortexes to air pressure or rockets! It's a fast paced high energy session that is sure to enthuse children on the wonders of science. Note: to accommodate this amount of science, these sessions need to be 50-60 minutes in duration.
A top secret workshop that is sure to amaze your senses and put the wow into science!
Super Sleuths (KS1 & Lower KS2) is a great session where the children are fully engaged by performing lots of different hands-on science activities with the addition of working out which of their friends committed the crime!
The science: UV light, displacement, magnetism, colour filters, floating and sinking and fingerprints.
See The Light
See The Light (KS1 & Lower KS2) is a fun session where the children discover how white light is actually made up of the colours of the rainbow (colour spectrum) and how light can be reflected and adsorbed by different materials. It also explores how shadows are formed and that light travels in straight lines.
The science: light sources, reflection, shadows, light spectrum, filters, transparency, lenses and the focal point.
The In and Out of Food
In and Out of Food (KS2) follows food in a very hands-on (messy!) way as it goes through the digestive system... and yes you know what they make at the end... but don't worry it isn't real, although it does looks pretty realistic!
The science: internal body parts, bacteria, enzymes, acid, energy and bodily waste.
Full of Hot Air
Full of Hot Air (KS2) looks at air and what it's made of and how it affects things around us. Children experiment to see what happens when air temperature changes, along with investigating the effects of air resistance and air pressure. The also answer the age old question. "Does air weigh anything?"
The science: air pressure, warm air, cold air, and air resistance.
Test The Water
Test the Water (KS1 & KS2) looks at floating and sinking in a really fun way and how things differ between tap water and sea water. The children discover lots of unexpected things but more importantly will learn the reasons why some things float whilst others sink.
The science: displacement, floating, sinking, density, volume and surface tension.
Push Me, Pull Me
Push Me, Pull Me (KS1 & KS2) a very memorable session that looks at the power of magnets, how they work and the invisible (or not so invisible when you know how!) forces involved with them.
The science: attraction, repulsion, magnetic poles, magnetic materials and the forces involved.
Power Trip (KS2) explores electricity and circuits and looks at various objects to see if they are conductors or insulators. We use lots of unusual items and includes making a human switch, which always brings smiles to faces!
The science: electricity, static electricity, conductors and insulators.
