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.

Science Workshop Experiments

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.

Requirements

  • Appropriate for K to Year 2 students with a maximum of 30 students per class for equipment access
  • Access to a sink to wash up; it may be best to use your art smocks
  • The slime is non-toxic and will not stain fabric
  • Ideally this should be run on a grassed area
  • An outside covered area in case of rain
  • Duration 60 minutes, set up time 30 minutes, pack up time 30 minutes

Cost

  • $350 inc. GST per class of 30 students
  • Minimum school science visit cost is $440 inc. GST per day

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.
 

Optional extras
