Science Shows, Workshops & Demonstrations for Kids
“It’s a crazy idea but it just might work!”
Our Science Shows and Workshops enthral children of all agaes whether it's at a brithday party, science show, village fete or just a special event!
We offer special workshops and parties on subjects such as Simple Machines, Transport, Sir Isaac Newton and Bernoulli’s Principle.
Usually lasting between 30 and 60 minutes, our science shows and workshops include many of the following topics:
Sample Science Demonstrations:
- Electricity & Static Electricity - children learn about static electricity with fascinating demonstrations and, if they are good, enjoy a small electric shock!
- Slime & Polymers – children take home a tub of noxious glowing slime in snotty green or putrid pink and in the process learn about polymers, both natural and man-made.
- Let there be Light – colour and light and how the eye works culminates in an amazing indoor fireworks display observed through diffraction glasses.
- Sounds like Fun - experiments to explain sound and how it travels complemented by some serious karaoke fun.
- Heat of the Moment - temperature and explaining different methods by which heat is transmitted; our experiments demonstrate relative temperatures and how candy floss or pop-corn is made (possibly with samples!).
- It’s a load of Hot Air – we look at the science behind hot-air balloons and the Wright Brothers’ early aeroplane designs, including Bernoulli’s Principle and the History of Flight, demonstrated by the making and flying of paper aeroplanes.
- Crazy Reactions - understanding chemical reactions and the factors that affect their rate of change in fun and interesting ways, resulting in amazing lights, colour variations and gas formations.
- Magical Science – discovering the science behind some popular magic tricks and optical illusions.
- Bad Air Day - experiments revealing the properties of air, smell, air pressure and the creation of a vortex.
- Water Rockets - an amazing day making and testing the power of rockets – whoosh!!.
“Just wanted to say thank you for a fantastic day yesterday; Boffin Fiona was a huge hit! She was very well organised, excellent with the children and put on a fabulous performance. Both children and teachers were equally impressed.”
