School Science Workshop... Working with Water! | Fizzics Education

Working with Water

Working with Water

Explore water's properties with this hands-on workshop for younger students

Dive into the depths of water science for primary students!

Water, water everywhere! Skipper a soap-powered boat, create a Cartesian diver, race a balloon boat, investigate water chemistry, learn a ‘magic’ ice trick and more. Participants will explore:

  • sinking and floating
  • surface tension & pressure
  • fair testing

… plus all things wet in this fun and engaging primary science workshop visit!

Australian ACARA Content Outcomes:

Earth’s resources, including water, are used in a variety of ways (ACSSU032).

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

Everyday materials can be physically changed in a variety of ways (ACSSU018).

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

The way objects move depends on a variety of factors, including their size and shape (ACSSU005).

A push or a pull affects how an object moves or changes shape (ACSSU033).

Australian National Curriculum Mapping for all our science workshops & shows

NSW Science Syllabus Content
A student:

observes the way objects move and relates changes in motion to push and pull forces

identifies that materials can be changed or combined

describes how the properties of materials determine their use

investigates how forces and energy are used in products
