“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?

If you would like more information or wish to make a booking, please either call us on the number below or complete the Schools Enquiry form and we will contact you within 48 hours.

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."

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!”

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:

Our School Workshops and Demonstrations:

States of Matter

Learning about atoms and the three states of matter, this workshop features dry ice burps, giant bubbles and fire extinguishers, plus each pupil gets the chance to make instant ice cream! Subject to a small premium of £120 for dry ice supply (less £40 discount for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday bookings). (Science Boffins cannot be held responsible for late or non-delivery of dry ice by a third party courier).

Plasma Balls & Playful Polymers

Looking at jaw dropping visual effects from the film industry, your pupils will create Frankenstein-like plasma flashes, have electricity pass through their bodies to light a fluorescent tube, and may even get a shock on their noses! Learning about polymers, your pupils will also make their own slime to take home.

Great Gases

With a selection of incredible experiments and demonstrations, prepare to see the power of vacuums, understand the air we breathe and wonder at gases both harmlessly fun and tensely volatile with quite a few pops and bangs for good measure.

Fabulous Flames

One of the greatest forces of nature in the palm of our hand. Watch our boffins demonstrate fire in ways never seen before – making flaming experiments to wow, amaze and educate on the power and the dangers of mankind's greatest discovery.

Space-tacular Universe

From the depths of space we bring several fantastic astronomical experiments and science activities about space, planets, gravity and all things galactic. A truly fun and extraordinary way of bringing the cosmos to the classroom.

Know Your Newton

One of the greatest scientists in human history and a father of physics brought to the classroom. Learn and test Newton's laws and see his experiments in practice. Gravity, rockets, pendulums and balloons galore.

Incredible Illusions

Can you trust your own eyes? Boffins bring incredible scientific illusions to amaze, confuse and trick your senses and see which young boffins are sharp enough to figure it out. An interesting assortment examining the fine line between magic and science.

Forensics & Crime Scene Investigation

There’s been a robbery! Lots of stuff has been stolen, there's a red substance spattered all over the walls, and fingerprints have been left everywhere! In this crime scene investigation workshop, your pupils learn what it's like to solve a crime, learning about spatter patterns, ink chromatography, and fingerprints. Plus pupils get their own crime scene suit and magnifying glass to take home.

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.
