Secondary Science Stage Show... Big Science Big Fun! | Fizzics Education



An awesome science show performance with all the cool stuff for your next school visit!

See gigantic bubbles, flying toilet paper, hair-raising electricity experiments, bubbling liquid nitrogen demos, levitating beach balls, volunteers on a nail chair, a giant gyroscope, fire balls, coloured shadows, a flame equalizer and much more!

This great ‘science sampler’ was originally developed as the main stage show for 2008 Australian Science Festival in Canberra as a way of introducing science into the greater community. Perfect for schools that want a professional large stage performance in their school hall, with an added bonus that a show catering up to 240 students at a time is also more economical per student.

Students love this as an end of school term treat or as something to get the kids back into science!

Australian ACARA Content Outcomes:

PW1 Change to an object’s motion is caused by unbalanced forces acting on the object (ACSSU117).

PW2 The action of forces that act at a distance may be observed and related to everyday situations.

PW3 Energy appears in different forms including movement (kinetic energy), heat and potential energy, and causes change within systems (ACSSU155).

CW1 The properties of the different states of matter can be explained in terms of the motion and arrangement of particles (ACSSU151).

CW2 Scientific knowledge and developments in technology have changed our understanding of the structure and properties of matter.

The motion of objects can be described and predicted using the laws of physics (ACSSU229)

Energy conservation in a system can be explained by describing energy transfers and transformations (ACSSU190)

NSW Science Syllabus Content:

A student:

develops knowledge of the Physical World, Earth and Space, Living World and Chemical World, and understanding about the nature, development, use and influence of science (SC4-10PW).

describes the observed properties and behaviour of matter, using scientific models and theories about the motion and arrangement of particles (SC4-16CW).

describes the action of unbalanced forces in everyday situations (SC4-10PW).

applies models, theories and laws to explain situations involving energy, force and motion (SC5-10PW).

VIC Science Syllabus Content

The properties of the different states of matter can be explained in terms of the motion and arrangement of particles (VCSSU096)

Energy appears in different forms including movement (kinetic energy), heat, light, chemical energy and potential energy; devices can change energy from one form to another (VCSSU104)

The description and explanation of the motion of objects involves the interaction of forces and the exchange of energy and can be described and predicted using the laws of physics (VCSSU133)

School Testimonials


Yarra Valley Grammar

It was seamless from start to finish. Ben the presenter was knowledgeable and really funny.  He focused on energy which is the topic we are doing so the whole show was terrific. I thought the pracs were relevant and appropriate for the age group.

MacKillop Catholic College

The presentation engaged our students and maybe lit another spark or two of interest in them. Thank you very much!
