Marvellous mixtures

Discover the types of separation techniques in a variety of mixtures

What really is a mixture?

In this hands-on science workshop your primary students will investigate all manner of suspensions, colloids and solutions to find out different ways of separating mixtures such as:

  • Filtration & chromatography
  • Magnetism & centrifugation
  • Evaporation, chemical separation and more

Are these separations physical techniques or chemical techniques?
