Chemistry Show

Creative chemical concoctions ideal for covering a broad range of chemical changes

A fantastic school chemistry show with flare!

See bubbling dry ice, colour changing chemical reactions, glow in the dark pigments, elephant’s toothpaste, stringy slimes, colourful flames and more! 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
  • acid rain
  • the chemistry of fireworks
  • properties of solids, liquids and gases
  • UV light and glowing chemicals
  • energy changes and more…

Available as a primary school science incursion within Australia or as a LIVE 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:

ST2-7MW-T
investigates the suitability of natural and processed materials for a range of purposes

ST3-6MW-S
explains the effect of heat on the properties and behaviour of materials

ST3-7MW-T
explains how the properties of materials determines their use for a range of purposes

NSW K – 10 Science Syllabus mapping for all our incursions

Victorian F – 10 Science Curriculum

Science knowledge helps people to understand the effects of their actions (VCSSU056)

A change of state between solid and liquid can be caused by adding or removing heat (VCSSU059)

Natural and processed materials have a range of physical properties; these properties can influence their use (VCSSU060)

Scientific understandings, discoveries and inventions are used to inform personal and community decisions and to solve problems that directly affect people’s lives (VCSSU073)

Solids, liquids and gases behave in different ways and have observable properties that help to classify them (VCSSU076)

Changes to materials can be reversible, including melting, freezing, evaporating, or irreversible, including burning and rusting (VCSSU077)
