Gigantic bubble1
Fun science for active Kindergarten to Year 2 students where we explore everyday chemistry in a different way!
 
  • Create gigantic bubbles...just what is the science behind them?
  • Make tasty sherbet... a chemical reaction in your mouth!
  • Launch a rocket... which variable changes the height?
  • Make some gross slime. Cool chemical science!

This school science visit is a great way to explore mixtures and simple variables in an outdoor environment.

What a great day! The children were buzzing with enthusiasm. They had all had things to go home and try. I liked the freedom to create that the kids had as well as the support & help supplied. The activities were varied and fun and we had access to 'expensive' stuff that schools don't have.

Content

The workshop is built around 3 modules; 

  1. Chemistry of giant bubbles. Students investigate the effects of changing the bubble mixture.
  2. Sherbet making. Students witness that certain ingredients can be combined to create a reaction.
  3. Slime making. Students learn to follow a procedure and problem solve to get the desired result.

Fair testing of variables and clearly communicating results is emphasised throughout each module. 
There's also time for a rocket launch to really demonstrate that variables can have a big influence on the result.

This workshop is best run outdoors on a grassed area near a table otherwise an undercover area out of the rain will suffice.
