Marvellous mixtures

Discover the types of separation techniques in a variety of mixtures

What really is a mixture?

In this holiday hands-on workshop your attending will investigate all manner of suspensions, colloids and solutions to find out different ways of separating mixtures. Filtration, chromatography, magnetism, centrifugation, evaporation and chemical separation techniques are all explored…are they physical techniques or chemical techniques?

Great for younger kids but older children will enjoy getting involved too!
