Slime, Sherbet & Bubbles

Slime, Sherbet & Bubbles

Outdoor chemistry workshop for the holidays!

Outdoor science for active kids 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 session is a great way to explore mixtures and simple variables in an outdoor environment.
Slime is non-toxic and will not stain fabric and the children can take their slime and sherbet home.

NB: This can be a messy workshop – choose a suitable site!

Science workshop experiments


The workshop is built around 3 modules;

  1. Chemistry of giant bubbles. Investigate the effects of changing the bubble mixture.
  2. Sherbet making. Witness that certain ingredients can be combined to create a reaction.
  3. Slime making. Learn to follow a procedure and problem solve to get the desired result.

Whilst we have a bunch of fun we also concentrate of teaching that fair testing of variables and clearly communicating results throughout each module. There’s also time for a rocket launch to really demonstrate that variables can have a big influence on the result… plus, to be honest who doesn’t like a rocket?!?

This workshop is best run outdoors on a grassed area near a table otherwise an undercover area out of the rain will suffice.
