“It’s a crazy idea but it just might work!”

Science Boffins Provide Entertainment at School Science FairsScience Boffins have a great reputation for the provision of entertainment at school science fairs and fêtes.

We can provide an activity table so that passers-by are engaged with a variety of challenging hands on science experiments that will have the crowds milling around to see what is happening.

You can even ask for the ever popular slime making to be included so your guests have a special take home gift - a must for all budding younger scientists!

As an alternative, our Boffins can perform a show, generally about 30 minutes, to a gathered audience. These demonstrations contain some of the flashier experiments which are sure to WOW everyone! Or, why not get the best of both worlds, and combine both a table top activity stand and static presentations at pre-set times?

Science School Assemblies by Science BoffinsScience Assemblies and School Workshops are a great way of stimulating your students' desire to discover more about science and their world.

Who would have thought that science could be such fun?

Our entertaining stories for assembly ideas and spectacular experiments often need young volunteers and press-ganged teachers!

To get funding for the event I had to apply for a grant and part of the conditions of the grant were that I had to hand out questionnaires to the teachers that attended the event. Here is a typical response:

“It was hands-on and made relevant to modern use."

Schools love Science Assemblies and Science Workshops!!

For a comprehensive range of scientific demonstrations and science experiments specifically designed for schools to be interactive based on the KS1 & KS2 school curriculum, please contact us. As specialists providing workshops for Science Weeks, Enrichment Weeks and Open Days, we provide entertaining, educational science assemblies and science workshops to help your pupils understand how science affects every aspect of their personal world.

“Science is FUN ”

In schools and clubs, we provide entertaining, educational science assemblies and science workshops to facilitate aspiring scientists enjoy hands-on science.

“I would just like to say that the children and staff had a brilliant science day. Boffin Mae and James Boffin were brilliant. The activities were hands on and children were buzzing after the assembly and the activities. All in all, I am glad I invited you to come to our school. Thanks!”

School Science Fairs, Fêtes & Events

Outdoor Science Fair by Science Boffins

Your fair or fête will be a memorable event, and not just because of the weather. Science Boffins will transform a trestle table into a laboratory in the twinkling of an eye. Give us the opportunity and we will show you how.

Science Shows for Schools by Science BoffinsOur School Science Shows and Workshops enthral pupils in schools, museums and libraries. During National Science Week we are able to offer fun but Educational Science workshops.

Usually lasting between 30 and 60 minutes, a school science show or primary science workshop can include any of the following topics:

Some School Science Shows and Demonstrations:

  • States of Matter - Liquids and Solids have never been such a gas before Science Boffins illustrated them with dry ice and ice cream
  • Floating & Sinking - A whole new vista will rise and fall before your students’ eyes as they investigate the whys and wherefores that make substances go up and down. Hot Air Balloons and Dancing Raisins add to the mix.
  • It's A Gas - We will guide your pupils through the understanding that some solids and liquids contain gasses that can be liberated under certain conditions. Hydrogen Balloon Explosions and Film Canister Rockets add an extra blast.
  • Static & D C Electricity - Children learn about static electricity with fascinating demonstrations and, if they are good, enjoy a small electric shock!
  • Hands In Hands On - One of our most enjoyable workshops combines looking at plasma balls followed by a polymer teach-in.   The polymer take-home is a tub of noxious glowing slime in snotty green or putrid pink.
  • Science Workshops for SchoolsLet there be Light – Colour, Light and how the eye works culminates in an amazing indoor fireworks display observed through diffraction glasses.
  • The Human Body - Join an explanation as to how their body works (almost automatically) and learn how medics discovered how taking food, liquid and air can drive the most complex machine known to mankind.
  • Flying - This workshop discovers how men first satisfied their urge to fly like the birds and the science behind the hot air balloon which we launch.  A discussion of Bernoulli leads to a hands on experiment or two to prove his theory and then to more modern lighter than air machines.
  • Simple Machines - Back to the land of the Pharaohs for a hands on introduction to the simple machines discovered and used in that era.
  • 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.
  • Science Demonstrations for SchoolsMagical 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.
  • Rockets - A countdown to 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.
