From absorption to reflection, your kids will have a ball plus will gain a strong understanding of light and it's applications in everyday life. This performance can also be viewed as a LIVE web conference anywhere in the world!

What OOSH are saying about our science shows & workshops
btn more sml 2

All the Year 1 teachers of Manly Village Public School want to thank you for the interesting and informative Light and Sound incursion that Ben delivered to us yesterday. The children were shown many different examples of how light and sound work such as the Newton's wheel, the slinky and the shadows on the screen. Ben was very professional and enthusiastic and gave simple explanations that the year 1 students could understand. Many thanks for the educational show and we will be sure to recommend Fizzics Education to other teachers in our school and other colleagues.

Science workshop experiments

Sunsets Just why are sunsets red anyway? Why not blue or green?
Colour mixing Mix primary light colours ... why are the secondary colours different to paint?
Bubble Films See light split through a bubble film. Nice... and demonstrates wave theory
Float that image Create a 3D floating image hovering in mid-air
Magic specs See rainbows all around with these diffraction glasses
Glowing rocks Some minerals fluoresce under UV light... can you identify which ones?
Hidden beaker Canola oil and this beaker have almost the same refractive index... lets hide it
Talking telescopes Make a telescope in class
Hide me Transparent materials are quite difference to translucent ones.
Cartoon capers Make a number of cartoons work with these zoetropes and flip charts
Optical illusions Light can be quite tricky, can you spot how they might work?
Mirror boxes Hidden compartments can create 'magical' illusions. How do they work?
Optical fibre Pretty.... and it can be used to transport massive amounts of information
Perfect plasma A plasma ball can demonstrate light energies... and the students love it
Colourful chemistry Some chemicals react to heat and change in colour... check them out!
Colour vision Our Director is colour blind... are your students?
Fly's eye scopes What is the difference between human and insect eyes?
Shiny disco ball Mirrors and light... what more can we say? Send images around the room!
Mega lens Use this lenticular lens and magnify things, including you.
Lasers Investigate how lasers work and see them through a cloud... neat!
