Gross Science! | Holiday science visit by Fizzics Education

Gross Science!

A holiday science workshop with all the gooey gross stuff!

Science for the outdoors!

Let’s get messy with gross science experiments that kids just love!
Not for the faint-hearted, all sorts of gooey, yucky science is covered.. some of which will end up on your kids!
Get disgusting!

NB: This is a messy workshop – choose a suitable site!

Designed from experience

Our holiday science programs have been designed by experienced science teachers and communicators to make sure that the balance is right; cool experiments that they don’t normally see at school and all the fun stuff that you would see at a science toy store!

Plus we’ve run 1000’s of science visits for kids since 2004 so all experiments have been completely tried and tested. With all the great feedback we’ve had, your center is sure to have a blast!
