Crazy Chemicals

Bring out your student’s inner scientist. Discover, learn and be engaged!

RECOMMENDED FOR FOUNDATION  - YEAR 4

 

Students will be divided into groups and sent on a rotation of exciting hands-on science activities. We encourage the students to make their own predictions and observations using their newly acquired science vocabulary.

The science behind the messy fun will be discussed when students are challenged to think critically about chemical reactions, chemical changes, magnetic forces and the properties of materials. Our innovative stations allow students to investigate solids, liquids and gases and discover how these substances can react and change. Slime, magnets, rockets and more- what else do you need to inspire your students love of science? 

Our qualified teachers are fantastic at tailoring this session to suit your focus so please provide as much detail as possible and we can make it happen.
