Day 1> Atomic Monsters  

We start the day by diving into some gory details about our blood. Then we discover the life cycle behind a popular Halloween decoration – the pumpkin lantern! We harness the power of static electricity to make a ghost fly around our spooky haunted house.

Blood Making – We explore the make-up of blood and then make our own gory blood sample.
Pumpkin Life Cycle – We discover the life cycle behind spooky pumpkin lanterns and make a pumpkin life cycle model.
Haunted House – The children experiment with shocking static electricity and make their own petrifying haunted house.
The Fun Zone – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 2> Gory Genius

Our scientific geniuses become ghoulish chemists for the day as they create an acid/base volcanic eruption, explore stretchy, gooey polymer slime and then investigate why oil and water don’t mix.

Eerie Eruptions – We learn about chemical reactions before making eerie erupting pumpkins.
Spooky Slime – Then we investigate the power of polymers and make some glow-in-the-dark florescent slime.
Witch’s Cauldron – Finally, we try to mix two liquids that don’t want to mix and create a bubbling witch’s cauldron!
The Fun Zone – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 3> Trick or Treat

We trick our eyes with ghostly optical illusions and then create a gruesome looking sweet treat before examining what makes up our skeleton and making a friendly model skeleton – Skelly!

Witchcraft Illusions – Our science wizards practice their magical skills and create a baffling thaumatrope optical illusion.
Viral Petri Dish Sweets – We then delve into the murky world of bacteria and virus and make some petri dish sweets.
Skelly, the 3D Skeleton – We end this day with a spine-chilling look at the skeletal system and put Skelly the Skeleton together.
The Fun Zone – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 4> Witchcraft Science

Today we shoot rockets and examine how jet propulsion could speed up a witch’s broom and zoom bats across the classroom! Then we create a glow-in-the-dark spider web and uncover some creepy spider facts.

Flying Bats – We investigate jet propulsion and launch some batty bats.
Spooky Spider Webs! – Arachnophobes beware! We take a close look at the world of spiders and make a glow-in-the-dark spider web.
Broom Zoom! – Then we take the jet propulsion theme further and investigate sending witches in to space with a rocket witches’ broom!
The Fun Zone – We re-cap the activities with quizzes and challenges designed to reinforce the day’s learning.

Day 5> Freaky Fun!

The body is the focus when we ‘dissect’ a plasticine brain and get to grips with a skeleton hand. Then we animate some jelly worms as they do a wiggly dance. We round off the day with a bone-chilling dry ice show.

Brain Building – We get the children to use their heads and make a grisly brain model!
Manic Bone Hand – A gruesome grabber helps up discover the bone structure in our hands.
Dancing Franken-Worms – We then bring to life some Franken-worms and make them dance in a bubbling liquid.
Mysterious Dry Ice – We end the day with some fantastic chilling and mysterious dry ice experiments.
