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.

Australian ACARA Content Outcomes:

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).

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

Australian National Curriculum Mapping for all our science workshops & shows

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).

NSW K – 10 Science Syllabus mapping for all our incursions

Victorian F – 10 Science Curriculum

Chemical change involves substances reacting to form new substances (VCSSU098)

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)

Chemical reactions, including combustion and the reactions of acids, are important in both non-living and living systems and involve energy transfer (VCSSU126)
