...tick, tick BOOM!

 
A fun science show performance where we blow stuff up!
In the name of science of course :)

Exactly what the students want!


Isn't it just? What better way to get kids into science than to do the stuff they want to see!
Originally designed to be run at the Powerhouse Museum, this large stage performance gets noisy as we explore the science behind explosions and explain why chemical safety is so important. This is not just a series of tricks though, our experienced presenter will cover a multitude of concepts:
 
  • air pressure differentials.
  • exothermic vs endothermic chemical reactions.
  • the effect of surface area on reaction rates
  • combustion requirements.
  • properties of liquid nitrogen
  • applications of controlled explosions and more...
Ideal for schools that want a professional large stage performance in their school hall, with an added bonus that a show catering up to 240 students at a time is also more economical per student. Excite the students to get back into science or simply end the year with a BANG!

Australian ACARA Content Outcomes:
 

  • PW1 Change to an object's motion is caused by unbalanced forces acting on the object. (ACSSU117)
  • PW2 The action of forces that act at a distance may be observed and related to everyday situations.
  • PW3 Energy appears in different forms including movement (kinetic energy), heat and potential energy, and causes change within systems. (ACSSU155).
  • CW1 The properties of the different states of matter can be explained in terms of the motion and arrangement of particles.(ACSSU151)
  • CW2 Scientific knowledge and developments in technology have changed our understanding of the structure and properties of matter.

Cost

$990 inc. GST per science show performance (this works out at $4.13 inc. GST per student).

Call 1300 856 828or use this form to inquire or make a booking for your high school.

Free 30 minute teacher PD video conference with 2 or more booked science shows.
For schools outside of metropolitan areas please contact us to discuss how this workshop can visit your school as part of a regional visit.

We don't charge per student as we know that this causes an additional administrative load on your school office. Most schools tend to fill the science workshops & shows based on our recommended maximum number of students. If you have any questions please contact us.
