Exploring science holiday workshop - Fizzics Education

Exploring Science

Exploring Science

Holiday science with toys; push/pull forces, light/sound & magnetism!

Science activities that kids love!

Enrich your next holidays with a hands-on science workshop that entertains all involved.

The program begins with demonstrations on vibrations using screaming rods, thunderous drums and harmonic bells, followed by colour-changing chemical reactions and more! This holiday workshop has been adapted from our very popular science parties run across the country.

The bulk of the session focuses on a variety of hands-on science toys setup as exploratory stations on light, sound, movement, energy changes and more. Most of the program is hands-on, where our presenters expand children’s understanding of science whilst allowing the kids to get involved!
