A fantastic school chemistry show with flare!


See bubbling dry ice, colour changing chemical reactions, growing crystals, glow in the dark pigments, elephants toothpaste, stringy slimes, different coloured flames and more! 

Designed to cover a broad range of chemical concepts that is accessible to primary students.
 
  • kitchen chemistry found at home.
  • physical changes vs. chemical reactions.
  • acids vs bases and indicators to detect them.
  • acid rain.
  • the chemistry of fireworks.
  • properties of solids, liquids and gases.
  • UV light and glowing chemicals.
  • energy changes and more...
Available as a primary school science incursion within Australia or as a video conference to any school around the globe!

Many thanks for a fantastic day last week. The Big Science Show got rave reviews from both children and adults alike.

Australian Curriculum and NSW K to 10 Syllabus Links

Australian National Curriculum Mapping for all our science workshops & shows

Australian ACARA Content Outcomes:

Natural and processed materials have a range of physical properties; these properties can influence their use (ACSSU074).

Solids, liquids and gases have different observable properties and behave in different ways (ACSSU077).

Changes to materials can be reversible, such as melting, freezing, evaporating; or irreversible, such as burning and rusting (ACSSU095).

NSW Science Syllabus Content

A student:
 
  • identifies ways heat is produced and that heat moves from one object to another (ST2-6PW)
     
  • identifies that adding or removing heat causes a change of state between solids and liquids (ST2-12MW)
     
  • identifies the observable properties of solids, liquids and gases, and that changes made to materials are reversible or irreversible (ST3-12MW) 
     
  • describes how the properties of materials determine their use for specific purposes (ST3-13MW)

Science Show demonstrations

 
Elephants toothpaste A foaming chemical reaction that needs a 'helper' chemical
Dry ice rainbows See colours form in water when an acid indicator is added
Impossible to burn paper An old magic trick, showing that evaporation keeps materials cool
The blue bottle A spectacular chemical change from clear to blue
Coloured flames Different materials burn with different colours... link to fireworks
The fire triangle Oxygen is needed for fires... let's prove it with a fireball!
Slimy strings Made from a chemical found in seaweed... it's in your ice cream too!
Glow chemistry Glowing salts and glowing shadows! Fluorescence in action.
Precipitate chemistry Clear solutions mixed together can produce surprising results
Super absorber Check out this super absorbent polymer used in magic tricks
Dry ice chemistry Is sublimation physical or a chemical reaction?
Want a hands-on chemistry workshop instead? We offer a chemical capers school workshop too!

Also studying changes in solids, liquid & gases as different states of matter?
liquid nitrogen show covers this content very well!


For schools outside of metropolitan areas please contact us to discuss how this science 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 on our science incursions please contact us.
