School Science Workshop... Slime, Sherbet, & Bubbles! | Fizzics Education

Slime, Sherbet & Bubbles

Slime, Sherbet & Bubbles

Outdoor chemistry workshop where students can see variable testing first hand

Fun science for active Kindergarten to Year 2 students 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 school science visit is a great way to explore mixtures and simple variables in an outdoor environment.

Australian ACARA Content Outcomes:

Objects are made of materials that have observable properties (ACSSU003).

Different materials can be combined, including by mixing, for a particular purpose (ACSSU031).

A student:

identifies that objects are made of materials that have observable properties

identifies that materials can be changed or combined

describes how the properties of materials determine their use

School Testimonials

Glenquarry Public School

What a great day! The children were buzzing with enthusiasm. They had all had things to go home and try. I liked the freedom to create that the kids had as well as the support & help supplied. The activities were varied and fun and we had access to 'expensive' stuff that schools don't have.  Better than expected!

Workshop Content

The workshop is built around 3 modules:

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

Fair testing of variables and clearly communicating results is emphasised throughout each module.
There’s also time for a rocket launch to really demonstrate that variables can have a big influence on the result.

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

Learn fair testing whilst making huge bubbles!


Appropriate for K to Year 2 students with a maximum of 30 students per class for equipment access

Access to a sink to wash up; it may be best to use your art smocks

The slime is non-toxic and will not stain fabric

Ideally this should be run on a grassed area

An outside covered area in case of rain

Duration 60 minutes, set up time 30 minutes, pack up time 30 minutes


$390 inc. GST per 60-minute workshop when 2 workshops or more are booked on the same day.
If only one workshop is required, the cost would be $480 inc. GST per day
