Click Here to choose your Topic


Choose Your Science Day Workshop Topic 

Select a Science Day Workshop Topic for your Science Day Workshop!

Each topic is fun hands-on and enquiry based, are linked to the National Curriculum and cover a branch of Natural Sciences of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. You can choose one per science day!

Please find topic descriptions below.

Topics

Green Earth!

(Biology fun!)

Pupils find out how cool plants really are! Using spectacular chemical demonstrations and experiments, they experience firsthand the significance of the ‘greenhouse effect’.

Pupils  see renewable energy in action by making their own take home ‘Solar Powered Oven’.

Communication!

(Physics fun!)

We take pupils on a journey from the basics of communication to present day technology. Hands on experiments include sound wave ‘tube tubas’, radio wave ‘walkie talkies’, S.O.S. coding using light bulb circuits and even ‘fibre optic lights’.

Our mini investigators make and take home their own ‘Mini Wave Signal Cannon’!

Super Slime!

(Chemistry fun!)

Proven to be one of the pupils’ favourites, the Slime Workshop is an exploration of ‘states of matter’ introducing ‘colloids’ and ‘polymers’ whilst exploring the chemistry behind gooey stuff!

Each child makes and takes home their own special coloured slime pot!

Forces!

(Physics fun!)

Pupil visit the key concepts of ‘Newton’s 3rd law of motion’ and ‘Friction’. Through cool experiments like the ‘skateboard challenge’, ‘chemistry rockets’ and the ‘locking book’ we discover how these concepts assist athletes when competing in sporting events and how it helps everyone in their daily lives.

Every pupil makes a ‘friction sprinter’ which they get to race at the end- but who will win Gold?

Brainiac!

(Biology fun!)

The children learn about the different parts of the brain, their functions and their purpose. We will show that the cerebrospinal fluid and the skull protect the brain from sudden impact. Through a series of short activities, students will discover which side of the brain they use the most! They will see just how good their memory is, try to keep their balance and better understand the sense of touch! They will also investigate why two eyes are better than one!  The children will then make their own colourful brain hats!

Dry Ice!

(Chemistry fun!)

Pupils will learn about the properties of Carbon Dioxide and how cool the gases are through a variety of spectacular ‘Dry-Ice’ experiments, including:  ‘tasting’, ‘giant bubbles’, ‘balloons’ and ‘popping corks’ – to name but a few.

Pupils go home inspired by the coolest gas in the world and the unforgettable experience of tasting fizz without having drunk any liquid.

Adaptation!

(Biology fun!)

This workshop explores the question of why living creatures have adapted to be the way they are and offers children an exciting introduction to Darwin and his theories.

Each pupil makes and takes home an ‘adaptation butterfly’ – but will it have the correct adaptations to survive?

The Colour of Light!

(Physics fun!)

Pupils will rediscover just how the famous historical scientists Francesco Maria Grimaldi and Sir Isaac Newton identified colour and where it comes from. They experiment with Newton’s colour wheel, the properties of different metals and discover how rainbows are created.

All pupils will try on our ‘Rainbow Diffraction Glasses’ which miraculously break-up white light into its component colours. For a small extra cost, these ‘prisms that you can wear’ can be given to children as a fantastic take home!

Explosive Earth!

(Chemistry fun!)

Pupils explore Earth’s amazing layers and how the crust gets destroyed and re-generated through trenches and volcanoes. They go on to experience its power through an explosive ‘jet pack fuel’ and ‘elephant toothpaste’ volcano experiment.

Each pupil creates their own ‘mini volcano’ and watches the chemical reaction erupt!

Invention and Discovery!

(Physics fun!)

We show pupils through inquiry, discussion and practical activities that anyone can become an inventor. Using the pneumatic tyre on a bicycle as an example, pupils explore how even the simplest inventions can change the world.

All Pupils get hands on, make and take home their own ‘Pneumatic Pressuriser’.

Explore the Future!

(Physics fun!)

We take pupils back to the future to look at Da Vinci’s transport inventions. Then we go forward in time, beyond the present, to explore the Hyperloop Theory; which uses the concepts of magnetism, propulsion and air pressure.  An exciting alternative method of futuristic travel.

All Pupils get hands on, make and take home their own ‘Supersonic Stomp Rocket’.

Flight!

(Physics fun!)

We learn about the Four Fantastic Forces of Flight; Gravity, Lift Thrust and Drag through a fun game. Then discover the power of Frank Whittle’s turbojet engines and explore the Bernoulli effect.

Each child will receive a polystyrene glider which can be constructed in the workshop or later in class.

Topics Key:

Biology Fun!
Children study living organisms, divided into many specialized fields that cover their morphology, physiology, anatomy, behaviour, origin, and distribution.This includes plants and animals of a particular area and human biology: the physiology, behaviour, and other qualities of a particular organism or class of organisms.

Chemistry Fun!
Children explore the branch of science concerned with the substances of which matter is composed, the investigation of their properties and reactions, and the use of such reactions to form new substances.

Physics Fun!
Children explore the branch of science concerned with the nature and properties of matter and energy. The subject matter of physics includes mechanics, heat, light and other radiation, sound, electricity, magnetism, and the structure of atoms.

Science Assembly Show – The Greatest Show on Earth! 🌍🎆😎

These 20-30 minute shows are designed to entertain up to a whole school hall of children with spectacular science demonstrations and discussions to inspire their curiosity and imagination on science and are the highlight of your schools next science week!

Choose one of the great shows listed below!

Super Hero Show!

The Instructor has been watching a lot of movies about superheroes lately and has decided that maybe he/she could be a superhero too – all they need to do is figure out what they might be really good at, and use science to make some adaptations – everything from spinning fast enough to knock villains out of the way, to covering themselves in slime, to propelling themselves across the room with a flammable gas, to conducting electricity.  Instructors present a range of science topics through exciting demonstrations. Some of the science topics include: air pressure, chemistry, balance, Newton’s Laws of Motion, electricity, the Bernoulli principle, strong shapes and mathematics.

Science Challenge Show!

Two scientists compete against each other as they are challenged to come up with creative experiments including clucking animals, extraordinary bubbles and making an exploding desert!

Flight Show!

Children get an insight into flight. They are inspired by local British scientists and focus on the work of Frank Whittle and the jet engines. They will witness highly visual and entertaining experiment performed by the instructor which highlight the forces behind lift.The children are fascinated by seeing experiments using parachutes and leaf blowers and they are surprised by the power of air and nappy bags!

Communication Show!

This communication themed assembly will have the instructor taking the audience through the origins of communication. Using sound (tube tubas), fire (flash paper), smoke (fog machine & Airzooka) and electronic equipment the instructor will call up volunteers to take part in this interactive assembly

Invention and Discovery Show!

Children get an insight into the history of Inventions! They will discover what major transportations have been discovered and what the forces they need to overcome to get faster. They will witness highly visual and entertaining experiment performed by the instructor which highlight these forces.

Explore the future Show!

Children get an insight into the history of transportation and Friction! They will discover what major transportations have been discovered and what the forces they need to overcome to get faster. They will learn the differences forces which affect our modes of travel. They will be inspired by Da Vinci’s designs and Newton’s Third Law. They learn the science behind the experiment performed by the instructor with links to rollercoasters.

Energy Show!

The Instructor has come fresh from the laboratory and wants to test out lots of experiments. These experiments revolve around energy and chemical and physical changes, including combustion. Paper notes are burned, carbon dioxide is produced and balloons are being popped. Some of the science topics include: Energy transfer, heat, chemistry, Laws of Thermodynamics, liquids and gases. Children will develop skills in observation, testing and making conclusions through interactive demonstrations.
