Science Incursions

The best way to learn science is to do science!

Choose from our exciting hands-on science incursions that explore the Chemical Sciences: Super Science, Mad Scientists and Giant Bubbles. 

Super Science

Recommended for Grades K-6 and can be adapted for Special Needs.

Have the camera ready to capture your students’ expressions as they catch the fog from dry ice, make polymer slime and launch fizz rockets.  Experimenting is the perfect way to explore scientific inquiry and cause and effect; we make it hands-on and fun!

This hands-on incursion allows your students to experience a range of different chemistry experiments and discover the properties of everyday materials. This is the perfect fun, interactive incursion to explore classification, change and how the properties of materials affects their use. 

 

Please let us know when booking if there is a particular focus that you would like us to cover. With your permission, students may leave with a small bag of slime: we will discuss this with you prior to the incursion.

Freezing Warm and Boiling Cold

Recommended for Grades 3-6.

Your students will be wowed as we create waterfalls of sinking clouds and experiment with dry ice!

In this hands-on exploration of how adding and removing heat affects materials, students will generate hypotheses, explore reversible and irreversible changes and investigate changes of state.

You students will be challenged to use their newly-acquired knowledge in our ice-cube challenge, where they use their knowledge and our selection of materials to help save their ice cube from a warm bath!

This is the perfect topic for investigating either the chemical or physical sciences curriculum.

Giant Bubbles

Recommended for Grades K-6

Experience the wonder of giant, floating orbs, fog filled boo bubbles, bubbles lighter than air and even sticky, touchable bubbles.

We teach your students to become bubble magicians as well as scientists and students are encouraged to develop a hypotheses about their experiments and how the bubbles work.

This is the perfect, hands-on incursion to experiment with change, cause and effect and how materials are used.
