Crazy Chemicals

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

RECOMMENDED FOR KINDER  - YEAR 6

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 think critically about chemical reactions and explore a museum of science. Our innovative stations allow students to investigate solids, liquids and gases and discover how these substances can react and change. Slime, rockets, magnetism 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. We will also adapt terminology, key words and some equipment to differentiate and challenge older students.

All you need to do is check the criteria in ‘Important Information’ below and we will do the rest.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

I just wanted to give a huge shout out to Brent, your enthusiasm was infectious and the students absolutely loved the four experiences you set out. The feedback from all of the teachers involved was positive and they noted how well you explained the ins and outs of a billy cart to the students. Thanks so much, we will definitely look to use you again in the future and will spread the word where possible.

Penshurst Public School

Thanks to Mel, the students loved the experience. It's great to know that they will remember the experience and have a vice (their take-home crystals) to use to bring them happy thoughts in times of sadness/anger! Hopefully we will have a unit next year that will be enhanced by one of your programs.

Team Building  ~ This is the third year we have booked this incursion for our grade 1&2 and it was brilliant. Mel was amazing. She knew exactly how to run the session. The teachers enjoyed it as well and were able to make many interesting observations. Thanks 

Coburg West Primary School

Very positive, engaging experience. Very well organised with explicit instructions. It was inclusive, all of our students with special needs had a great time. The kids had a ball and I believe that they all learnt something about teamwork and resilience. Thank you!

Oscar Romero PS

The instructor had a good rapport and great class control with our staff and students. We would welcome him back anytime.

Ryan was fabulous, he engaged the students and had them excited to learn. The incursion was a great introduction into circuits and the students where buzzing with their learning back in the classroom. Thank you!

Antonio Park PS

The students were highly engaged and they were able to recall many of the learnings of the session, not just the activity. Thank you very much for re-arranging the time and being flexible.
