Fun Science Long

Length of Presentation:
60 minutes
Description:
A magic trick is a good start to differentiate science from magic and the 3 cup monty looks like magic but is truly scientific. Gasps of amazement are assured if we demonstrate Elephant’s toothpaste and it keeps spilling out and spilling out filling the table with foam. Balloons are always fun but extra fun with Rocket Balloons, Spinning Balloons and Helicopter and cars driven by balloons all possible team races. Magnets can be repulsive or attractive depending on your polarisation but balloon kebabs are always a tasty experiment. Squidy is considered “a must” for most younger children.

Fun Science Short

Length of Presentation:
30 minutes
Description:
Good things can come in small packages and this may start with a head spinning Tornado Tube and the mind puzzling 3 Cup Monty. Whatever the weather we can make snow in the children’s hands and hopefully they will marvel at the wonders of Squidy, our own Cartesian diver. Thinking of living creatures, we love to make Elephant’s toothpaste and if we can get outside, a coke / mentos geyser is a must.

Dry Ice

Length of Presentation:
30 minutes
Description:
A must for older children where they may see balloons that self-inflate or the use of CO2 as a fire extinguisher. Tasting the gas and dry ice burps are part of the fun as are dry ice bubbles and the extra loud pop that one gets with a Film Canister rocket but we save until last the spooky scene where everyone sits on the floor as the white mist swirls all around them. Other possible experiments, too numerable to mention all here but there is The Shivering Queen and Screaming Scissors. All this and they may also understand the different nature of solids and gasses.

Dry Ice + Dry Ice Ice Cream

Length of Presentation:
45 minutes
Description:
A must for older children where they may see balloons that self-inflate or the use of CO2 as a fire extinguisher. Tasting the gas and dry ice burps are part of the fun as are dry ice bubbles and the extra loud pop that one gets with a Film Canister rocket but we save until last the spooky scene where everyone sits on the floor as the white mist swirls all around them. Other possible experiments, too numerable to mention all here but there is The Shivering Queen and Screaming Scissors. All this and they may also understand the different nature of solids and gasses. Here is a chance to try ice cream made with dry ice or else we might use smoothies or even Popcicles. Since this option is just 15 minutes long (approx.) it is what one might call a short and sweet option

Slime Making

Length of Presentation:
30 minutes
Description:
Young party guests can learn about polymers and take home their own pots of personally mixed ghastly green, putrid pink or rancid red sticky slime. Of course, it’s all washable with soap and water and definitely non-toxic.
  • Each child will have their own pot, and mix their own slime
  • Slime Colours: Could be Ghastly green or putrid pink or rancid red
  • For an easy party bag idea you could drop into a sandwich bag with some cake/sweets

Sweet Science

Length of Presentation:
30 minutes
Description:
The three states of matter seem an unlikely starting point for a popcorn explosion but there will be a lot of munching going on and to follow this three uninspiring powders will be served to everyone in individual dishes and when mixed the children find they have lemon sherbet to eat there and then or to take home.

Rocket Launch

Length of Presentation:
15 minutes
Description:
Our rockets are replicas of the real thing with a solid fuel motor that may climb hundreds of feet in the air before deploying a parachute or ribbon and floating gently down to earth. If floating down to earth involves meeting trees on the way we will launch our Lunar Module to replace the rocket so even if you have a restricted area we should still be good for BLAST OFF! The birthday boy or girl has the honour of controlling the launch pad and presses the buttons after an exciting countdown. Slime is carried as a standby in case of rain or other emergencies.

How to play

The object is to move Brains so that he catches the dangerous chemicals in his test tube. Miss too many drops and you lose.

Move Brains left and right with the A and D keys or by the arrows < and >.
