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.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Mark, who ran the Billycart incursion was wonderful with the children and provided an engaging incursion for all age groups.

Carranballac College

Absolutely. We were amazed at how well the students participated in the three activities we chose for the day, especially the Hip Hop session. We had a fabulous day. Melissa was wonderful with the kids. It was great to join in with the activities. We would have you guys back in a flash. Thanks for an amazing experience.

St Margaret Mary's

Thanks to Mel for being such a wonderful teacher throughout our sessions. The students loved the experience and I had parents telling me this morning about the precious crystals their children had brought home and how special they were to them! It's great to know that they will remember the experience and have a vice to use to bring them happy thoughts in times of sadness/anger! Thanks again guys, hopefully we will have a unit next year that will be enhanced by one of your programs again.

The Instructor was great with the children! He really excited them about the science and also with the creative arts. The children were very engaged in the activities and had lots of fun. Was a great way to finish our term :) Thank you.

Presenters were extremely good. My students were very excited and enjoyed the experience. My girls wrote about the opportunity to use a screwdriver, they loved it. Well done to everyone.

Ian was absolutely incredible!! The actual incursion was unbelievable! I have been teaching for many, many years and this is by far the best incursion/excursion ever! Every single child was highly motivated!!!

Blackburn Lake PS

Teachers were extremely impressed and pleased with Ian's ability to implement many strategies, that not only helped manage the group of 50 students but also kept them engaged and excited about exploring each 'land'. He explained each task wonderfully and provided background knowledge for students to think about. We couldn't have been happier with how the day turned out. Job well done, indeed! Thank you for a wonderful day! The students and teachers loved the incursion. Everything was well organised and well present. This incursion was a great introduction to our inquiry unit, how things move. Ian was also excellent! Thank-you! We have also enjoyed sharing the different stories told about the history of toys with each other.

I am continuously amazed by the commitment, engagement and presentation by the talented staff and leaders of Supreme Incursions. The leaders present with an extremely high level of interest for the children's participation - they always want to have the best experience possible. The combination of having a learning experience as well as a fun time is very well balanced.

All the students loved the activities, and staff enjoyed seeing different strengths emerge from individuals that don't always appear inside a classroomcontext. A few students found the team building activities challenging, but the staff managed it all really well, and students stepped through someof their issues/mindsets to then experience team in its many different forms. It was excellent. We really liked how a few 'camp twists' were includedin the Team Building activities (the race at the end), and also how some tasks were further altered as the students are at the end of Grade 2 (theblock/swamp activity). All staff at Supreme Incursions are terrific to work with, and your approach and enthusiasm makes the entire process from start to finish, smooth and enjoyablefor all involved. Thank you for a brilliant two days.
