Chemistry Capers Workshop

Chemistry Capers Workshop

Creative chemical school workshop ideal for covering a broad range of chemical changes

Hands-on school chemistry workshop all about changes

Find out about the science that can be found in your own kitchen as students run hands-on science investigations in chemistry. Designed to cover a broad range of chemical concepts that is accessible to primary students:

  • kitchen chemistry found at home
  • physical changes vs. chemical reactions
  • acids vs. bases and indicators to detect them
  • properties of solids, liquids and gases
  • energy changes and more…

Available as a primary school science incursion within Australia or as a video conference to any school around the globe!

Australian ACARA Content Outcomes:

Natural and processed materials have a range of physical properties; these properties can influence their use (ACSSU074).

Solids, liquids and gases have different observable properties and behave in different ways (ACSSU077).

Changes to materials can be reversible, such as melting, freezing, evaporating; or irreversible, such as burning and rusting (ACSSU095).

Australian National Curriculum Mapping for all our science workshops & shows

NSW Science Syllabus Content A student:

identifies ways heat is produced and that heat moves from one object to another (ST2-6PW).

identifies that adding or removing heat causes a change of state between solids and liquids (ST2-12MW).

identifies the observable properties of solids, liquids and gases, and that changes made to materials are reversible or irreversible (ST3-12MW).

describes how the properties of materials determine their use for specific purposes (ST3-13MW).
