Fired Up! : Fizzics Education

Fired Up!

Explore how heat really works!

  • See the fire triangle in action – with a controlled fireball!
  • Why do we see flames in the colour we do?
  • Learn about combustion chambers and how they are used in rocket engines.
  • How do magicians do the tricks they do?
  • Explore convection, conduction, expansion & more

From coloured flames to spectacular fire demonstrations, this fire show will keep your students warmed up to science!
Full risk assessments available on request.

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

Online Class Version

We’ve run live interactive distance programs since 2010 and are highly experienced in making online classes engaging for students on a variety of web conferencing platforms.

  • All of the same curriculum points will be covered, but the activities may vary from those listed for face-to-face incursions.
  • Our online classes include demonstrations, Q&A, and hands-on activities (you will receive a materials list upon booking).
  • Full child protections are in place
  • We usually connect to classes & homes via Zoom, however if you wish to use a different software we can work with you on getting the connection live.

explains how energy is transformed from one form to another

NSW K – 10 Science Syllabus mapping for all our incursions

Victorian F – 10 Science Curriculum

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)

Heat can be produced in many ways and can move from one object to another; a change in the temperature of an object is related to the gain or loss of heat by the object (VCSSU063)

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)
